Stock Turbo have a Oil Restricter ?

Does the stock turbo need or have a oil restrictor on the oil feed line?

Are they ball bearing or journal?

I don't recall any form of restrictor on the feed line. The older feed lines have a small flex section that has been since updated with a solid line oil feed. Journal bearings are used on the stock and PowerMax turbos.

typically the journal bearing turbos don't have a restrictor.

I don't think any powermax turbos to add are not ball bearing even though you read it on a company like Mkm customs website claiming they are.. false advertising... Learned this a couple days ago. I thought they were ball bearing.
