I would imagine below the baffle but just barely. I have no experience with this kit though.

Make sure it is above the oil level in the pan and a little extra above to be safe.

Above would be better, but as long as the fitting is out of oil so that there is no restriction on the returning oil you should be ok.
Drilling the hole exactly 3in from bottom of oil pan like it says in instructions will put you right at the bottom of baffle. At least it did on my car.

You should be fine with the recommended distance specified on the installation manual. I attached a PDF copy of the installation manual for reference, page 11.

If you have any questions feel free to email me direct at rawakim@turboneticsinc.com
