Bump on the oil feed length. On a side note, a little update as far as my parts list goes. I just bought my cold side from Sporadic. Thanks again for that.
Also, for those wondering about the fitment with that manifold and the O2 housing. Next week I will be doing a fitment test to see if that PTA alternator will be in the way. I'll post some pics for everyone. Thanks for all the input guys.

thanks! Much appreciated. Once I get all the parts I'll be doing a build thread on here. Looking like I'll be finished around September, October.

mine held 225 until it got hot. Mostly slipped at the track, on the street it was fine. I had about 50,000 miles on it then.

Ok cool. Yea I'm definitely exploring my options for a clutch. I might just go low boost until I do my engine build and then do the clutch when I do everything else. Also, what's the deal with the differential in the 2nd gen? I keep trying to look it up to see what it can handle. Not really sure what the deal is with the traction control. Anyone had any issues when upping the boost? Put that on my to do list with the engine build. Thanks again for the replies everyone.

Ok, thanks for the info koke'sfocus. Gathering up all of the little stuff right now. Next week I'll be picking up an oil pan to tap into for the return. Getting a second one so I don't accidentally mess up the good one that I have. Test fitment should still be next week sometime. Will definitely post pics up for everyone. I'll do some measuring then for the oil feed. That's it for now, keep the replies coming. Any suggestions are welcome too.

m7 and -4 AN for oil drain? No.

You either need to tap your windage tray or your oil pan for oil drain. There is NO factory hole for an oil drain. You are probably talking about the oil feed, which you can take a bolt out of the head or the block for. An oil drain should ALWAYS be -10 AN.

Thanks guys. yea for my turbo the oil feed is -3an. Already comes with the fitting on the turbo. Now is m7 the size for the oil sending unit? Might do something similar to what sporadic did on his for that.
answered my own question, if you read the label it says 1/4 npt.
