Whichever you get take into consideration your driving style. I don't hit full boost until about 3k. Which fr me is ok but the guys that run smaller turbos dot have as much lag and take off from a stop better. I don't like straight line driving unless its highway so to me it doesn't matter.

I need something from 3 k and up to 5-6k full bust and ball bearing and water cooled precision is cool but they are only journal bearing and bb will be from $1k which is not for my valet

I'm thinking - need to sell my fluidyne radiator - it is to thick.. damn

Finally trying to get my turbo build finished the right way. Out a cfm PVC delete on. Gave me the clearance to fit the turbo up to the manifold. Now to modify the downpipe to fit and hopefully the stock fans will go back into place. Hoping i can get rid of my j&s. Then need to finish tuning and I can drive it for once.

I realized that there isn't a oil restrictor in my oil feed line. Not sure what size to use with my turbo. Anyone know this answer?

there are mixed responses to the question of a restrictor a journal bearing turbo. you dont need one as long as you are running a good size oil return (-10an) and a -3an feed line and your oil pressure is still in the range of a stock zetec. for the best answer ask the manufacturer of your turbo

A larger return line wont stop high oil psi/ high volume from blowing out a turbo seal , I do agree with asking who made your turbo if a restrictor is needed and or what size as well as the guys name so you can go back to him with a warranty issue if needed
