    Default Shovelhead turbo oil line question

    Rebuilt 81 shovelhead (sturgis), andrews b grind, port polish heads, hydraulic lifters.
    Howdy all,
    Can I run an oil line from the oil tappet screen for my turbo. I know its got enough pressure there, but I don't want to totally redirect that pressure from the tappets. Turbo is tiny, only running 3-4 lbs boost.
    Any thoughts on this?Click image for larger version.

    The turbo on my shovel is plumbed from there. Run a restrictor, though.

    That's what I needed. Thank you.
