Default Stainless Steel oil restrictor help

Hi sooo I have a huge problem, while installing my oilfeed line into the turbo somehow it became stripped... So the hole in the turbo is toast and I see no way of tapping it and iv heard a lot of bad things about helicoils so my preferred option is to just weld that sucker on there but I can't seem to find a Stainless Steel oil restrictor fitting anywhere

The turbo is a blouch dom 3.0 with a gt28/30/35r chra and I have no idea what restrictor size I need. 0.040?? I just know that the fitting is -4 AN that screws into the actual oil line

Anybody that can help, please do I'm out of ideas at this point

use a timesert, they are better than helicoils and the best repair for your problem.

Problem is unekmikesti apparently doesn't want to use the drill and tap method due to metal shavings going into the turbo (?).

Call Blouch and ask them what you need. They have been pretty good in the past with over the phone service

if it's just a restrictor why not just get a stainless plug and drill it, then weld it if you want
