ZXthrizzle05 Exactly. It doesn't hurt anything and gives me peace of mind. I like precision, and theyuse DBB and you don't need to run water lines

Jim they didn't believe me until you posted, must be because of the power you made, LMAO!!!
If it was because of power, wouldn't he (gimmemore) knew the least?

This happened after a lot of EVOs' running 5857 and some 6262 had the issues and some more than once, Precision issued warranties and suggested the restrictors even in DBB. When I went to pick up my spare center cartridge my friend told me the seals are improved, still wouldn't hurt and I run one.

Turbo Turtle distance from the oil pump doesnt matter. most run from a fitting behind the coil pack on the zetec head or you can tee into the sending unit

Why would you want to run it off the head? I thought you wanted it closes to the oil pump

ZXthrizzle05 and to answer your question focused...I bought the restrictor from ATPturbo.com just search for either journal bearing restrictor or search for the size restrictor

ZXthrizzle05 this thread is going the wrong direction and is diverting from the OP objective. I am deleting said posts and issuing a warning

Earls32 Gimmemoreboost you messed up by that statement. You might want to stay out of this thread if your not going to help the OP. Just my 2cents
