Sand_man is right- this ball could F!#k up a ball bearing turbo if it is missing. I am pretty sure that I messed my 37R up just by cranking it over without this ball. Also, If you have a ball bearing unit and are unsure of oil supply, I would switch to a diffrent feed line. Im running a -4 AN line with a check-valve restrictor in line. I ran the check valve because I thought that the oil was draining down into the turbo on shut down and I was right. The check valve is a 996 turbo part # and I got a special adapter from Dan at Speed Gallery.
To control pressure and volume I would go with a -3 OR -4 AN line to the turbo and a .060 restrictor jet for a ball bearing turbo, and a .075 restrictor for a journal bearing turbo. This should fix your problem assuming that you dont have scavanging problems...
