    need Oil Restrictor Bolt on VXR turbo?

    Hi, people have this oil restrictor on the VXR turbo on their LET motors?

    REGAL:

    Direct replacement oil feed banjo bolt. Designed to reduce oil pressure at the turbocharger. While remaining high enough to sufficiently lubricated the turbo the reduction in pressure does not overpower the seals. No issues when fitting larger exhausts and no smoke at idle, minimal risk of leaks and no oil smell in the cabin when driven hard.

    A "must" for all serious drivers.
    I don't understand the problem with the oil pressure at the turbo, I know many people in France who have the LEH turbo on their LET motors without restrictor and they have not problem!

    alot of people are killing turbo's within 1000 mile etc etc over here, ive done nearly 12k on eds 3.5 and have a mate whats done 15k with cs3, both haven't had to replace turbos yet and have seen no smoke, i just think that how it is, a mate of mines just changed his after only 650 mile which i thinks terrible, i wont be fitting this bolt as i dont see the need and will obviously replace the turbo when it goes if i still own the car

    Spend 20 quid on the bolt to "protect" the 600 notes turbo, I think it is worth it, .

    what i cant ubderstand is why the vxr unit seems to be so prone to blowing...the standard units seem to last to at least 50k,why doesnt the oil pressure cause them a problem
