I think 30$ is very well worth it, don't have to worry about any cracks/leaks just my thought.
here you go....

If you look down by your oil filter you will see the 23mm (I think) Bolt sitting there. That is the bolt that gets replaced. :)

any benefit to this instead of just using the oil sending unit hole?
It's a little easier to get to than the sending hole since that is right under the intake manifold next to the water neck.

velella - I'm with MekoZ. Just buy the bolt from Toyota. That way if you ever have to take everything off you won't be stuck without a bolt for the oil filter bracket.

the XSPower kit includes a NPT Tee that allows you to remove the oil pressure sensor, put in the tee and then replace the oil pressure sender and get your turbo oil from the same source. True, not as easy to get to, but works great.

learned the hard way! run a straight line out of the sending unit hole and tee it off somewhere else that way the vibration cant crack the tee. also much easier to access to attach sending unit, oil line and pressure gauge. probably will need a 1/8 np male to male then run the line off that (most np fitting you can get at home depot or any auto parts store).
