into the bottom of the piece under the 6th injector, I think.  (That's
the part with the blue elec. fitting.)  in other words, aim it forward
and up into that other 4 way hose, the one that goes form the ISV to the
intake manifold.

those aren't oil lines, though it is easy to see why you would think
that!  most of them are PCV lines, with a couple serving as auxiliary
intake air via the ISV.  which is removed in your pictures, of course.

that's the after-run radiator fan thermo switch, it should be bolted
down by the rear two can cover nuts.  Short out the wires and the rad
fan should run.
