yep that's pretty much exactly what I had.  You have to run an oil line into the back of the dash, I had a stainless braided pipe so it wouldn't rub through on the bulkhead or anything.

That would be rather messy if it rubbed through inside!

How fast should the oil be coming out when disconnected?

depends what oil you use.

normally at a slowish pace as its only around 5-7psi. I would say from the oil i use, its a constant stream but when it gets hotter it does run a little better.
