Turbo Oil Restrictor

Recommended Posts

I purchased a 2009 T2 that was already turbo charged. WHile repairing some bad workmanship on the welds for the exhaust manifold I noticed there is a home made resrticted fitting on the pressure side oil feed for the turbo. Is this normal? It looks really small ( they used a carb jet) for the speed this turbo spins and I beleive it needs to be removed but wanted to check and see if anyone has the same thing.

Thanks for any insite you can give me.

answer is very dependent on what brand/style of turbo is being used...the use of a restrictor is very common on ball bearing turbos,and some journal bearing turbos ...without the restriction,when oil pressure increases,the flow into the turbo can exceed what the drain can get rid of causing the oil to push past the turbo seals and smoke really heavy...I believe the common restrictor size for garret turbos is .065...as a side note,we have noticed a few of the chinese turbos running without any form of restrictor,that definitely effect the troopers oil pressure (lower it)

just a link I found to show 1 of the styles

Thanks for the information. It is a Chinese turbo and I will continue to run a restrictor, hopefully I can manufacture a new one as they use an odd fitting that is not pipe or JIC.

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!

    • Glowing exhaust 2012 Hisun 400cc

      After operating,  the first several inches of the exhaust pipe where it leaves the engine on my Hisun 400cc glows bright red. Is this normal? There are various heat shields and other insulating material along the pipe’s pathway, so I’m guessing it is. Also, there are no other signs that the engine is running hot.

    • 1100 Sand Viper Fuel Pressure

      Does anyone know what the recommended fuel pressure readings are for an 1100 Sand Viper?  I recently had the gas tank and fuel pump replaced and now the engine is very difficult to start and when first depressing the gas pedal the engine bogs down to the point of almost dying unless you quickly depress the pedal to almost full throttle.  The readings I'm looking for are. 1.  Pressure reading when key is turned on and fuel pump is engaged but engine is not started. 2. Pressure reading when engine is idling. 3. Pressure reading at full throttle. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated.
