You do not have to weld anything for an oil feed. Simply take off the oil pressure sensor (which is located right next to the oil filter) and add a T-fitting. Put the oil pressure sensor and the oil feed line on the T-fitting. Thats it! There are pictures around. Just search around, they arent too hard to find.

The return line drains into the top of the oil pan. There is a boss already there. You just drill a hole, tap it, and then screw in the fitting for the oil return hose.

In the nicest way possible, you might want to read up on forced induction a little. Check out all of the stickied thread at the top of the Go Faster section, they are very informative.
