Turbo build in progress

So the past two days I've been working on my turbo build. I got the manifold and wastegate bolted on and the bumper off so I can mount the intercooler. What I need to know is when I run the oil feed from the plug from the head behind the coilpack location do I need to use a oil restrictor? I was also wonder if someone new the threads pitch of that plug if not, not a big deal I can figure it out.

You dont have to, but some of the turbos have a problem with the High oil pressure the focus puts out. Personally I have not had a problem with this but some have.

If you plan on doing it get a .06 restrictor.

I'd recommend to get a hold of the maker of your Turbo. They'll Tell you what size restrictor to get if needed.
