Quote from: Micktet999 on March 20, 2022, 09:05Thanks everyone much appreciated. My thinking is that the oil feeding the turbo is under pressure as it comes from the oil pressure switch take off point? My turbo ( ebay t25 or t28 copy) has a 2mm restrictor. Is the oil coming out of the turbo still under pressure?If it is would it be OK to use similar sized hose (AN 4 fittings) for the return?Or does it require a larger hose such as with AN 10 size fittings?Many thanks Mick

Total cost was about £150. I will be wrapping it to keep engine bay a bit cooler. Replacement subframe before and after paint job!! I had some Kawasaki green 2 pack kicking about in garage. Should last a good while me thinks.
