Just the typical begi oil drain line. I'll double check to make sure it's not kinked

the lack of restrictor wouldn't cause that much smoke, even if you actually needed it.

retrictor is pretty much only needed if a -4AN line on a journal bearing and you're overwhelming the dynamic seals.

you said you removed the turbo, was the oil all over the turbine, but not the inlet?
