Power steering hose, restrictor Question

How do you go about regulating the high pressure feed hose to the rack ?
I just completed an engine swap with mixed oem componets but I didnt install
a restrictor in the supply line because I wasnt sure where to put it and what
size it should be. I thought I'd just test drive it and see what happened.
The result is the steering is very heavy and noisy and vibrates back into
the wheel . I was told I need to install a restrictor . The line going into the
rack is a -8 . Whats the fix ??
Thanks, Joe

Some folks just buy this adjustable power steering valve......it is less than $100.

I have never used one.......I like manual steering........but I have seen good reports on the adjustable valve. Most street rod shops have them.
