U will need a t-piece. Which screws into the block where the oil pressure sender is , thread is 1/4 NPT. have the pressure sender on one end of the t-piece and oil line off the other . This goes to the turbo.
Then for the drain punch a hole in the sump to the required size and tap a thread . Use grease to catch the chips , 1/2 BSP is a good size. Then drain oil. A magnetic sump plug is Also a good idea.

U can use -4AN braided hose for the feed and a NBR hose for the drain using barb fittings.
Also depends on Ur turbo and what threads it has

Try and use a braided 200-series teflon for the feed if you can

Everything said from ef_falcon_95 is true, cant really explain it much better

dude thats the lazy way rip of the sump and do it the right way it will get metal filling in your sump and will travel up to your oil ways why risk s**t like that for the cost of a sump gasket .take of the rocker cover and raise engine enought to remove sump then drill or punch a hole as for the oil lines yes use the oil sender inlet ad a t piece ant connect oil sender on one side and oil line other easy just position where u want the loi line to go in as u see in pic it has to be in a good position which u cant see from out side the sump

Have done some thread mining via Google to find this but I'm hoping someone may know..

With raising the engine to remove the sump, where will it slide out? I tried raising the engine already and could not get enough room, am about to go take the rocker cover off now to see if that helps clearance at all (didn't even think of that first gone around.. Doh)

Cheers in advance

I gave up. Rented engine hoist, disconnected drive shaft smd tranny from crossmember, and that gave me the extra room to lift it and pull the sump out tge passenger side.

Cheers for the reply though!
