Default oil/coolant line help

I have searched quite a bit over here and at the "other forum" and i just cant seem to find what i am looking for. I recently purchased a gt2860rs for my 2001 and i need to know what size/type of oil/coolant lines i will need. I was thinking about a -4 an feed line and a -10/12 an return line. Will i ns eed a restrictor for my ballbearing turbo? Also whats a better place to source a feed line, a sandwich plate at the filter or the oil pressure sender? What kind of threads will i need for the feed line into the turbo and what about coolant?
Just incase anyone was curious heres my setup:
Begi manifold w/egr
Gt2860rs
Begi downpipe
rx7 550 injectorsx
hydra ems (most likely)
ebay special intercooler 26x6x3
3inch exhaust (waiting to see what begi comes out with)
ebay bov

I'll send you a PM, and maybe I can help you out.

I believe the GT2860 oil inlet fitting is a 7/16-24 thread. If you use a 7/16-24 to -4 AN adapter a restrictor in the line is not necessary. A -10 or -8 Oil drain fitting will work well also.

The Water/coolant line fittings on the turbo are 14 mm x 1.5. Water lines to thermostat are 5/16.

The oil pressure fitting on the passenger side is a 1/8 BNPT (British Pipe Thread).

I believe she is right about the inlet fitting size being a 7/16 inverted flare, but I don't see how using that fitting allows you to get away without running a restrictor. Just for clarity, its a BSPP (British Standard Pipe Parallel).
