Default oil feed and restrictor question for those using the Ford 5 bolt Garrett .60 t3

What size, if any, oil restrictor are you using? And where did you pick up your oil feed kit from?

Really? I got a -3 instead of a -4 oil feed line so I wouldn't need a restrictor.

I got a -4an because it was easier to find.

I was curious if they did use one, the factory fitting I got with it didn't appear to have one.

If you can get away with it, don't run a restrictor. if you need it, start with the pop rivet trick (.125") than actually go with a 060" one.

I had a .060" restrictor made for the latest CHRA and its been working fine with no smoke on start-up.

do a search with posts started by "samnavy" he posted a how-to about it. but yeah pretty much pull the pin out of the rivet, put the rivet into the feed fitting and gently shape it around the 36 flared edge. Then screw the feed on, simple/easy/cheap .125" restrictor.

you only need a restrictor if you're getting oil pressure related blow-by through the turbo seals.
