Default Tapping for oil

i thought i could use this nut from subaru that you use for oil pressure guages to tap for oil, but i can't find the right fittings. how should i get oil then? i know of the allen head bolt on top of the engine. where do i go from here?

are you doing this for an oil gauge or for a turbo feed line? if you have a kit(i have a ludespeed) it comes with a bolt than goes into that hole and then you just screw another adapter in then the feed line, but the threads into the block seemed a little iffy, luckily i had an extra subaru galley plug that i didnt use for my oil guage and also a 1/8 BSPT to 1/8 NPT adapter that was not being used so i just used those and it screwed together no problems i have to yet to see if it leaks but it shouldnt.

hope that helps

yes i do believe its an 1/8 but it may be 1/4, the best thing to do would be to ask Tom at ludespeed cause its his kit if you have to make sure.

Here are the parts and part numbers I used.

Subaru Mail Galley Oil Plug, 1102AA210, subaruparts.com
Autometer 1/8" NPT-BSPT adaptor, ATM-2269, summitracing.com
Earls -4an to 1/8"NPT adaptor, EAR-981604, summitracing.com

Then I just used -4an line. Hope that helps.
