why, you worried you are running dirty oil?
what happens to your turbo bearings when that little sucker gets plugged?

haha! no I am not worried,
I was wondering the same thing, why would you want to reduce the oil flow to the turbo
Reducing oil flow on Garrett Ball bearing turbos is a common thing. The Ball bearing CHRA does not need as much oil flow and pressure as a journal bearing turbo.

Having said that the turbo oil feed filters are a joke. The filter element is like a 400-500 micron and looks like a stainless steel mosquito mesh. I ran one on my Supra for a couple of years then tossed it after seeing how useless it was. I was running a .030 restricter on my Ball bearing turbos never had any oil get past the seal ring on them with that and no problems with lack of oil.
