Opinions are mixed at best with these restrictors - some of the Pelican old guard swear by them while others swear at them.

IMO the potential for both development of leaks due to increased oil pressure and the potential for cam/rocker wear due to heat because of limited oil supply (there 'might' be plenty of oil for lubrication, but these parts are also cooled by oil - it seems that lower flow would not be a positive thing) outweigh the foaming issue some see with the 'normal' parts. I think this applies to any motor - the turbo oil feed's increased volume and associated problems only add to the issues.

YMMV.
