Depends on a ton of stuff. Decide where you're routing the line, then decide how long it needs to be.

was planning on getting a pre-assembled stainless line and i will for sure be using the oil feed line on the side of the block.

Thanks again.

You can use a Piece of wire or thin rod to figure out where you're routing the line, then measure off of that how long you need.

When I prime the Turbo I squirt as much oil in it as I can, then hook up the line, and turn the motor over with no fuel till the oil gauge shows pressure. Bam. Primed. If there is a better way let me know.

A much easier way, albeit scary is to hold the compressor still with your hand and have someone start the car. Voila, primed turbo in seconds!
