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.

That first braided line is proabably a feed line, you should use it. Also check to make sure its not restricted. Mines was, drilled out the hole...problem solved.

Umm.. That is a nylon hose line for return. But good suggestion on drilling out the exit hole.

I will definitely check out the feed line for restriction. Its a lot smaller in diameter than the original greedy one which I'm kind of iffy about
