Default Oil supply restrictor

Hey guys i just got my turbo running, but it seems my oil supply line is too big and is putting too much oil pressure into the T-25 turbo. Im running a -4an line and i need to run a -3an. Does anyone know where i can get a 10mmX1.5 to -3an adapter to use on my block? Or something that would reduce the pressure on a -4an line. Im so close to finishing this turbo and it's killin me to have these little problems.

Thanks!

Buy a restrictor.

I run this one personally:

or if you are gung-ho on running a -3an line then:

how does the oil restrictor hook up? Does it attach to the turbo? Will this work on my -4an line?

screw the adapter into the turbo and screw the -4an line onto the adapter...

My T25 uses a 7/16 inlet thread that restrictor uses a 1/8 npt though so i think i might have a problem

K, what about this instead.

screw that into the turbo and the line right into that. Might want to get a 90* fitting
