oil feed fitting

I am going to be installing a Top Speed Turbo kit that I have on my Zetec engine in the next couple months. I have read that a good place to get my oil feed from is below the coil on the head. Does anyone know what size thread fitting that I need to tap into that spot? Or if anyone has a better suggestion for where to get my oil feed from?

Thanks,
Joe

I see.

I have another question.

I am putting the top speed kit on my stock zetec(by stock I mean it is stock head and bottom end) and I put the lightest spring in my wastgate, a little less than 5psi. Eventually I will be swapping out the engine with a fully built one from Focus Power.
I guess your supposed to use 1 step colder per 50HP. So with my engine the way it is now putting on the 5psi turbo should I go with 1 or 2 step colder plug??

Thanks
