turbo oil check valve

I'm confused reading the various posts on this.
I have my engine out and trying to do as many tidy up jobs as possible. I note I do not have the ball/spring thing under my idiot oil spitch. It seems to be recommended for turbo oil issues - too much oil? or oil draining back into turbo?
As far as I am aware I have no particular turbo /oil problem - other than the turbo model (3LDZ).
My question is - should I be putting a ball and spring in there - some threads just seem to talk of a ball. If so what size?
