Default couple of noob questions, need some help on turbo install

So i have a oil feed line kit that is only 36 inches long, and i dont think that it is long enough. Btw the car is a 99. And comes to find out that the thread that goes onto the block where the oil pressure sensor goes is a npt and not a bsp. I'm going to see if there is another type of thread that i can just get at the hardware store to mate to the t fitting. Is 36 in long enough and should I route it under the motor, or over? also my lc1 wideband is comming tomorw, so would i just get another bung for it and weld it onto my pipes and retain both of the factory o2 sensors. So i would have a total of 3 o2 sensors and run the lc1 independently of anything. I also got the lc1 adaptor to go to the adaptronic. and not completly sure of what to do at this point.

Is this a Mazda BP engine, or a Chevy LS1? I'm almost 100% certain that all the B-series blocks used a 1/8" BSP thread at the oil pressure sensor.

Anyhoo, is a great source of parts and hose for relatively cheap. So is your local industrial hydraulic hose guy.
