If you have low oil pressure, then these restrictors are not gonna fix the real problem. The only benefit I see with these is increasing the flow to other points on the engine at the detriment of the rockers and cam lobes. The real restriction is the spray bars since they have really small holes that aim onto the rockers for lube and why risk reducing flow further with the restrictors?
Why risk it......the only way to know for sure is to see a scientific test run back to back with these restrictors installed and not installed EVERYTHING ELSE BEING THE SAME. WHICH INCLUDES PRISTINE UNBLOCKED SPRAY BARS, which more times than not is the reason for cam and rocker scuffing.
Just my opinion.
