Default installed oil restrictor on my garrett turbo

now all i have in my exhaust is what looks to be condensation. no oil. although there is a little white smoke i figure its from the left over oil in the exhaust burning off. now my exhaust just smells like good ol' fuel.

Heh, white smoke and fuel smell probably means you're running really rich. Good deal on the lack of oil smoke though.

I drilled mine out to 1/32" (0.031"). You can search for the recommended opening size here... (I have a Garrett turbo on my Camry)

Ahh... Well, I already had a 1/8NPT to -4AN fitting on the top of my turbo (-4AN oil feed line), so I just replaced the inlet w/ that... That other one posted looks good too.

Guys my turbo has a very odd oil inlet whereby the inlet is actually closed up and there is two threaded holes one for the fitting and the second has a tiny tiny hole in the threads... I tried to take a picture but you can't see any thing... have any of you seen a new cartrigage of the GT series? The AVO 450 has it too... does anyone here know what I'm talking about? Is that the oil restrictor built in for the GT series?

yeah could be that, u may just need a flange that goes onto your turbo instead of the threaded hole that just takes a fitting

They aren't built in, but you don't need one on VF series turbos. The oil seals are built differently (or something like that). They see over 100psi in the WRX with no problem... It should be fine with 90psi or so max in an RS.

Just to revive this old thread. I have a question on this oil restrictor mod. What is the thread size on this part from ATPturbo.
Is it 1/8NPT male/female???... Do I need any additional fittings or will the oil line screw right in?

If it is a 1/8NPT... will this one here work? https://vs01.tvsecure.com/~vs01037/orders/show44.html

Thanks for the help

Looks like that should do it, if that is in fact 1/8"NPT male/female. It doesn't list the size on the site, so there is no saying for sure, tho.

GOOD NEWS!
I just called the place and IT IS a 1/8"NPT male/female adapter. The part is $4 and shipping is about a dollar. Orifice is 1/16. Should be here by Friday, so I'm hoping this will take care of the problem.
