It won't hurt the turbo...you could just turn the T block to point backwards...it might not be long enough to go all the way around though. You see the small plug in the back of the head? That is the same oil galley, it can be used as an oil feed port as well.
1. For your oil return line, is the bolt size you gave in the description the new length of the bolt I need or is it the stock length(I have a t-3)?
2. Can I use high temp thread sealant instead of the Teflon paste,I have both but just wanted to know if the high temp sealant would be better to use?
3. "This would be the fittings into the block and into the turbo" I don't understand what you mean when you say into the turbo? Do you mean paste the threads on the return flange or the bolts that go into the turbo?
1. Depends on which oil return line you use. For the header return, it uses the stock bolts. For the stock return line (version 2), it uses a thicker flange that needs longer bolts.
2. It should be fine.
3. The threads into the return flange, though this only applies to the header return as it uses pipe thread in that location. The version 2 stock return uses a taper seal on the flange that doesn't use the threads to seal so it doesn't need any sealant at that location.

Can I get pictures of how you have the header version bolted on at the block side please? I'm having problems getting it to route right and drain properly, I have Bob barkers old setup with the Precision 6031 and he had it with the 45 degree fitting at return flange to the 90 degree that comes on the line mated to another 45 degree at block. Can't I just flip the line around and do 90 degree with a straight fitting from turbo to 45 degree fitting at block and have a decent angle for it to drain right? Sorry for all the questions I'm still learning my turbos
Quick question, for the holset feed line, what would be the correct fitting for a 90* bend between the line itself and the fitting that goes into the turbo. I'd like to have the line go strait over the valve cover instead of sticking way up in the air as my header place the turbo pretty high.

We have a 90 degree Holset fitting but it doesn't fit HY's or HE351's without pulling off the compressor backing plate (it hits the plate when trying to thread it into the turbo). That's why we send a straight fitting and a longer line for the HY/HE351 orders.
You could certainly rotate the fitting in the head so it points a bit more towards the rear of the car which should allow the line to go under the IAC solenoid/throttle body area and hold the line lower.
