Zetecs run quite high oil pressure from the factory. I always ran a -3 feed line and a restrictor, or every time it would blow oil past the seals and smoke like cheech and chong.

My drain looks very similar to "cwczx3"

I have no restrictor yet. I have a -4an feed and -10AN drain

I ordered a custom fitting from Nitrous express - its 4an and will accept nitrous jets so I can try some different size restrictions.

4an is 1/4"

I will try a 3/16" first then go down if necessary.

Top Speed still does not call anyone back or answer the phone. Even if this is not their issue.

Not a problem on topspeed's part... other then they didn't include an oil restrictor which is kinda odd...

What turbo are you running?

This is what I ran with my gt3071r and never had an issue (its sized at .035" - 3/16 is going to be too large still)
http://www.atpturbo.com/mm5/merchant..._Code=ATP-OIL1

Its HIGHLY suggested that you run a restrictor... you may have already destroyed the oil seals.

I also suggest you post up on focaljet and see if you get a responce from them over there.

Its a Garrett T - Series. It has journal bearings

The restrictor fixed the issue, but if the drain was at adequate height I believe you wouldn't need to restrict it. And according to Garrett restrictor is the last resort.

I ran a Precision Turbo with a journal bearing with top speeds kit, with no restrictor, and never had a problem.

I do agree on their communication problems though.

You always need a restrictor.

The size is slightly different between ball bearing and journal bearing.

Ask zxthrizzle for the size of he knows.
