Default help identifying turbo fitting

I have a e motor garette style turbo gt2860 that i ordered from cincy performance and they dont know the size of the oil inlet port. Size meaning the thead pitch. here is a link to the site that i bought it from E-Motor Garret Style GT28 COM .60 TO4B 63 TRIM, .86 EXHAUST WATER/OIL
I called step at begi and she isnt sure either what size that is. Im trying to get the kit from them but i dont know what size it is. can any one shed some light on this

I don't know. Some of those knock offs use 1/2-20 fittings.

1/8 is too small. and 7/16 im not too sure about. i tried the coarse thread of 7/16 it doesnt thread well and stops suddenly . The place i went to didnt have the fine thread.
