Default need opinions on oil drain route

So I'm mocking up my turbo and ran into a small problem. I got a drain kit from fast turbo and I don't know if it's going to work. It's super short. I have the original fitting for the turbo and rubber hose I was going to use before I ordered the fast turbo kit. I could really use some advice on which route to go.

Fast turbo fitting

original fitting





option 2 with rubber hose



option 3 using AN fitting on oil pan

Use the rubber hose using a steel barbed fitting that can be welded to the pan. I use those on low-sitting "Mini-ram" manifolds using GT series all the time.
