    The fitting that they give you with a new kit uses a punch and a 3/8" npt tap. While it works i don't ever feel warm and fuzzy with any fitting just tapped in the side of the pan. If I have the pan off as in your case I weld a 3/8 female npt weld bung or in the case of my ttop car a -12 AN male fitting directly to the pan. I always TIG weld the stuff but I guess it could be mig welded with no trouble just beware of getting slag in/on the bung. Hope that answered your question.

    I wouldn't do that....I know the E7 springs are better the the GT40s but I really would look into better springs especially with boost...also I was told the gt40 valve steam seals are crap too...I had a set done for my supercharged car they cost me $500 I had new guides and stainless exhaust valves installed...also better valve steam seals...anyways I never used them i sold them...lol then went with a set of fully worked Trick flows....
