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.

      New here and have a question.
      I have a 2009 Arctic Cat Prowler 1000, I am wondering if other year engines will work on the 09? Looking at part numbers the engine has the same part number for 09 and 10, then 11 to I believe 15 have a different part number.  When looking at rebuilt engines some one stated  that theirs would fit Prowler 1000 09-15. So I thought I would ask.    Thanks in advance

      I have a 2009 Trooper that when I first start it it runs great but after about a min it starts to cut out under acceleration but clears out when it gets revved up.  I downloaded the manual from   Joyner-usa.com   but it doesn't help much,  Mine doesn't have a OBD port on it and my son who is a mechanic said he can wire one in if we have a wiring diagram for the CPU but the wiring diagram of the CPU that is in the manual is for a 3 cylinder engine.  The manual talks about a MIL light that can flash out a code but I don't know where that is and even if I did find it they  don't tell me how to read it.  I have tried the coil and the map sensor and that didn't help I checked the TPS and it checks OK.  I emailed Joyner and all I got from them is there should be a OBD port on it and then they said they checked and found some don't have it,  No help from them. Anybody run into this problem or know were I can turn to get some help on this, even a good wiring diagram of the CPU would be a big help.
      Thanks for you help
