Default What diameter oil line hole in fitting on turbo?

I've seen differing opinions as to the proper oil feed fitting hole diameter. What should the diameter of the hole in the oil fitting be that attaches to the tubo?

-4AN is probably the most common size.

Turbos don't consume a lot of oil. Well, unless something is very wrong, anyway.

He's talking about the proper restrictor, which is impossible to answer with the lack of details, hence my sarcastic reply to his lazy question.

way to ruin it Joe
