There's a plug in the block right next to the one everyone uses for the oil feed. Driver side, half way down the block, up against the transmission. For return I believe people use a line that you've removed. Like many of us, you've blocked off the front thermostat housing for your reroute.

You can see the feed in this picture:

Correct. Sounds like you've got it figured out, can't wait for the gorgeous over-engineered solution pictures.
