My turbo has journal bearing and I use a restrictor. I see people on here say not to use them but, from what I gathered when I was biulding my kit was why not. Iv'e never had a problem after 3years. I don't see why you would need that much un restricted oil flow to the bearing. With the turbo oil supply plumbed into the same place I source my engine oil pressure. It already drops the motors pressure 5psi. Would hate to see what it would drop without the restrictor.
