Oil feed line can be tapped into the log that feeds the oil pressure sender. There is room for more then one.

Gaskets from race part solutions although most just use copper rtv.

Drill, tap and insert -3AN or -4AN to NPT fitting depending on your line size. Put a nice coat of paint on it.

I used a T fitting.. split the oil pressure sending unit so it can run the sending unit and the feed line to the turbo. Picked up the fittings at NAPA

Will look much cleaner drilling and tapping the log...if you are scared of doing stuff like that then by all means go with the fittings.

I can fire a picture over when I get back.
