Default Custom turbo oil feed

Has anyone ever made an oil feed for the stock td04 wrx turbo with an fittings an steel braided line? Only asking because my stock line cracked an i wanted to prevent future risk. Main question is, is it safe to run an instead of banjo? Or is that going to allow too much oil to flow threw?

It's perfectly safe to use a SS/teflon oil line.
Just keep in mind you do need a restrictor in the oil line.

The stock restrictor is part of the stock hardline banjo eye, so you can not reuse this.
What you could do is measure the hole that is in there, and look for companies that sell -AN Banjo eyes with a built in restrictor, or an in line oil filter with a restictor built in.

Do both ends need the restrictor? Or just one somewhere in the line?

With a restrictor fitted the short answer woiuld be no.
The slightly longer answer would be No, but a smaller line would be better, as the larger diameter (and as a result the bending radius) of the AN6, instead of AN3 hose would lead to a bulky cumbersome setup, with a relatively unflexible line.

An an3 line is plenty enough to feed even a sleeve bearing turbo (which requires more oil then a ball bearing turbo) and is much neater and easier to work with.
