mate dont do it
its not worth it,
expecially if its the first time the turbo has been run, you will mostly likely cause massive premature failure by binding sh!t up
all good things come in time

You must have a pretty good autobarn up there.

Dont forget the usual oil pressure into the turbo is a lot more than gravity pressure.

Do it anyway and let us know how it goes.

1in deep is the right size to remove the Oil pressure sende.
When i replaced the one on my 6, i did it with a spanner, but the motor was half dissasembled at the time. The V8 ones are even worse
