oil pressure high in the focus head???

I was talking to the guy that i am buying my turbo kit from. he said that the focus has a high oil pressure in the head and like to blow the SPA turbos by putting to much oil into them. is this true? should i get a restrictor like a jet or something? He said i could get like a nitrous jet to restrict the oil flow going to the turbo...

i've seen most turbo installs use the factory oil pressure sensor location for oil supply or a sandwich adapter. I've never heard of such thing of what your stating...

If the guy that is selling you your turbo kit told you this he doesnt have a clue what he is talking about and you should run from any advise he is giving you

Reason one ) oil psi is the same in an engine if its taken from the oil at the block or head

Reason two) there is or has been no issues with hundreds of Foci people getting the oil from the head

I would be very carefull with any turbo advise from this guy if he doesnt know any more then this , who is it ?

Use the restricter between the oil line and turbo to lower the oil psi going into the turbo

It is higher than usual if you have a high flow oil pump, but it only depends on the turbo if you'll need a restrictor, they come in different sizes to match the different needs.

sorry if something was misunderstood but this is actually what he told me to do. where would i get a proper sized restrictor? im not sure on this part yet.

this info was given by a guy from some company that does not really work on foci... he said the couple he heard about thought they had to put a restrictor between the oil line and turbo. he bought a bunch of spa kits a long time ago and is selling them off.

Comp turbo has the restrictors and im sure there is a lot of other places as well , I would have who ever has to warranty the kit tell you what restrictor to install that way they cannot say you went to big or to small a restrictor

Use the one behind the coil , there are 3 legs on the bracket that holds the coil , cut the one off that is at the oil hole , use a 1/8 NPT x -3 90 deg oil fitting
