Default where to find oil restrictor for china 2870

I didnt realize the thread size for the oil feed is different compared to a real garrett, well at least they were different compared to my 2554.

Most say, running a restrictor on this china 2870 is recommended still even if its journal.

I know more and more of you guys here are running this exact turbo and would like to know what your using and where you were able to purchase it from.

Thank you!

18- The bad thing is, I cant just pick any restrictor that is labeled for gt25/gt28. What i tried doing was using the restrictor from my real 2554r and screwing it into the oil port on the china turbo, It looked like an exact fit so i tried screwing it in, about 2-3 turns so far so it gets hard and a remove it. The threads got stripped on the restrictor since it was soft aluminum.

If you or anyone else knows a restrictor that will fit for sure on these china chargers PLEASE post a link or point in the right direction incase other churbo owners see this

Its on my godspeed chinacharger. I just searched "oil line" or something like that and found it. Works perfectly.

Just did a quick search and can't locate the same one, and transaction too old for me to pull up in "my ebay".
sorry man.

I'll try searching again tomorrow

ok so after checking ebay and atp few restrictors came up. Just wondering does anyone know how to do that pop rivet trick for use as the restrictor?

I dont quite understand how you stick a pop rivet in the oil lline or in betweet the fittings?
