Where do I get all the fittings and braided hoses? Also what needs to be considerd as far as sizing on the return line? I hear that as large as reasonable, that I do not want the return oil line to be restrictive. T-78

I use 1/2" for my return line - that was the size of my oil return fitting on the turbo.

When I had a T-78 I used a -4 for the oil feed and a -10 for the oil return. You can get the fittings and lines from just about any shop, but you will need a special adapter to get the oil feed on the T-78 to mate up with a -4 fitting, as well as another from the motor to a -4. For the oil return line I used the flange from an FC oil return line. Then I welded a -10 male bung onto the flange. I did the same thing for both the motor and turbo sides of the oil return line.
