Kinugawa oil/water lines

Has anyone used the kinugawa oil/water braided lines on there ct turbos? (see attached)

The larger oil return looks shorter than oem from the pic. Also does the larger hose run a restrictor as ive researched and restrictors and recomended for the return as it build back up.

Hope someone can shed some info.

Thanks🍕

    You don't want any restrictor of any sort in the return line and it needs to run down as near to vertical as possible to prevent any buildup of oil in the turbocharger housing.
    A restrictor is often incorporated in the housing or immediately before the oil enters the housing to prevent an oversupply of oil depending on type of bearings used in the turbocharger.

    Thats what i thought ay. Main post is to confirm if it has a restrictor or not and the length of it. Just seeing if someone has one first hand

    Advice - don’t run a restrictor.
    New modern built race engine are running higher pressure (oil pump mod and relief valve mod in the case of a 3sgte), in that application they need a restrictor on the oil feed to the turbo (not drain). Do not create the restriction pressure in the turbo by restricting the drain.
    Having had kinigawa stuff before, and things not fitting properly being a mr2 (not a ct turbo in a Hilux or gt4), they were good to deal with and get a resolution. Check the listing is for mr2 specifically, email them questioning if it fits mr2, then if it doesn’t you have something to go back with.

    Thanks tony

    I emailed them and they confirmed the drain pipe doesnt have a restrictor and is the correct length. So all good :)

    Thanka guys

    I've got one of their wastegate actuators on my turbo. A mate has the same with no issues, I think they're probably the most reputable Taiwanese company which in itself isn't saying much but they're probably next best thing to OEM gear.
