Default No oil restricter equels low oil pressure

Ok so my turbo kit was but in 4 yrs ago by begi. i think they did not put the restricter in the oil inlet line. Would this explain my low oil pressure.


Thanks

Stock sensors whack out and go bad frequently. I've been through 3.

If you had a -12AN line feeding your turbo, about 10 feet of line, and your turbo had an equally large -12AN inlet and outlet, then it would be possible for it to lower your pressure.

The reality of the situation is that turbochargers, even ball-bearing turbochargers, are pretty effective oil restrictors all by themselves. You'd practically have to remove the bearings altogether in order to flow enough oil through it to meaningfully impact the oil pressure as measured at the engine block itself.
