i was removing the oil feed line to the turbo, things were going great until i stripped the fitting that holds it into the block(no idea how i was using a line wrench)anyhow. i was thinking about cutting the line as close to the fitting as possible then just unscrewing the big hex shaped thing that the oil pressure sending unit pluigs screws into, my question is will that thing come out of the block and is it possible to leave the pressure sending unit on while doing that

It will turn out of the head, but it would be better to unscrew the oil sending unit.

The oil distribution block is standard 1/4" NPT, no worries it comes right out. Leaving the oil sender on will probably make it a pain to remove but if you've got enough room no reason why you can't.
