You will need a "T" off the block on the driver side where the factory oil pressure sensor is to get your oil feed.

You have a couple of options for oil drain;

1. Drill and Tap the upper oil pan where the factory TT oil drain is mounted.
2. Punch & Tap the lower oil pan.

As far as the debris, I have to drop the oil pan for that right? And I think I have to remove the cross member?

Loosen motor mount bolts from underneath the car, jack up or use engine hoist to raise engine enough to get to the rear bolts on the lower oil pan... Then you can drill the upper oil pan with the motor still in the car... Just careful with aluminum shavings...

put a dab grease on the drill bit.
that helps to catch the shavings.
