So I have decided to just replace my rhb32 with a K03 turbo. I just finished the custom exhaust manifold and have the turbo mounted up.
My question is reguarding the Banjo bolt that attaches to the block. Is the oil passage large enough for this turbo or do I need to enlarge the opening?
It's taken a lot of work to get this far and I sure don't want to destroy the turbo due to lack of oil.
Thank you in advance Edd

The original line has a restrictor built into it. I don't know how much oil flow you need for that turbo, but there's probably more than enough reserve available. Too much pressure and you'll ruin the oil seals, or at the very least have a nice smoke screen following you around.

I am so sorry for the delayed response. Life has caught up with me and I've been chasing my tail.
I'm sure the answer is no longer needed but will answer any way for the next person.
I love the turbo. My original was wore out when I got it so I can't compadre it to it but I have had no turbo issues. Seems to feed the engine well. I replaced the oil feed line and used the original banjo bolt which has a small hole to restrict oil flow.
Again sorry for the delay.
Edd
