Short tubes fo sho

So I have a question for you smarter folk

Going to start mocking up a mount and hot side piping between the two turblows’, and was looking at 90 degree elbows (short/tall) and what I’m seeing is 3.5” OD, .25” wall and thinking it’s what I’m going to roll with....thoughts?

Piping for both cold and hot will be very short and I’ll have to find someone good at tigging stainless to knock out the cold side.

Hoping I can do something tasteful utilizing unused holes in the head to hold the front up and the hot side piping can be a supporting factor for the second half of the turbo.

The elbows can be positioned appropriately and have a schedule forty tube connecting them, and no use of v band clamps.

So I was using the plasma last night to cut out my flange that goes to the hot side of the turbo and started thinking ahead for the oil feed/drain..

What are your thoughts guys?

The turbo has threaded holes for both the feed and drain and Im wondering if it would be good enough to just thread fittings vs having a small plate utilizing a gasket and two bolts...?

Reason I ask is the amount of heat coming off the drain side, is there a high temp paste Id need to add to prevent it from leaking? And if I make small flanges to use the seals the turbo came with, Id still be threading and tapping them and using fittings which would sort of be redundant... unless I go with a 45 degree 1 tubing ID -Nipple- and just weld it up on the flange....

Im literally going to be taking the oil drain towards the pump, going in between the pump and block, then straight down to where the factory fuel plunger block plate is at, with a new plate and possibly welded -Nipple-.

The topside I believe is .25 NPT and the bottom side is definitely .75 NPT

Id use the threaded holes. Make sure you dont hard pipe it all the way, the vibrations and what little bit the motor moves it could break the threads over time. Use a piece of stainless flex hose on the pressure side and a good fuel grade hose on the non pressure side
