You could put a t joint off where the oil pressure switch mounts and run the feed from there. Most non turbo blocks still have the casting mark showing where the turbo block drain is plumbed in, that would be the best place to tap and thread for a drain fitting.

You need to drop the upper and lower oil pans and drill and tap the stock location for the oil return. For the feed, you need the proper .060" oil pressure restrictor and braided stainless lines to run from the stock oil pressure sensor location.

Theres a circle on the bottom of the block underneath where the exhaust manifold would sit. This is where the oil drain would be on a stock det. Drill the middle of that circle and tap it. Be prepared, theres a lot of aluminum to drill through.

And get your oil feed from where the pressure switch goes. Idk if its in the same spot on fwd and rwd sr's but if it the same, it'll be on the passenger side toward the front of the motor.
