Default Can someoen confirm that i have all the correct fittings?

Before i send out my order, can someone confirm this?
I have a Garrett 2560 Turbo.
Oil Feed line -
-4 size Oil inlet fitting for GT28/30/35R with built-in restrictor - For my BB.
Oil Feed Line -4 - SS Braid, 2 Foot length - Is 2 feet enough?
10mm (1.50 Pitch) to -4 AN Flare Fitting - Is this the correct "M10 x 1.5 to -4AN fitting" ?

Oil Drain -
Fitting, 45 deg, 1/2" NPT male to 5/8" single slip on barb - This is the one that will be going into the oil pan.
Oil Return Flange with integrated 5/8" barb For GT15 Through GT35R

Also, for a Downpipe, Has anyone tried out this combo yet?
This flange http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/me...gory_Code=GTBB Connected to this http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/me...gory_Code=GTBB and coming out of this http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/me...egory_Code=STL

My oil line was 28 inches, and just enough. Go with 3 feet if you can.

As for the exhaust, I would get a 90 degree bend, no need for that large of a bend.

A couple thoughts:
That 45 degree HB may interfere with the AC.
1/2 inch NPT is awful hard to tap and the tap costs as much as a new blender.
I don't see the need for anything bigger than 1/2 inch drain..... in part depending on where the turbo resides.
Your Garrett turbo probably has std threads, but a small bit of measurement can varify.
Do you have a dial caliper?

I did think the 45 degree would slightly difficult but that is the only one i found on ATP turbo. Im sure the other is there, somewhere.

Early typo? can you clarify with the size?

Yes i do have a caliper, but why would i need to see the size when both the inlet and outlet fittings are made for my turbo?

BEGI mani, custom downpipe. I ran my line out the block, along the engine, up through the manifold and into the turbo.
