The filter sandwich is just for the feed line, if you have then use it. You still need a oil return line and tap the oil pan to do away with the fail banjo fitting.

ok sounds like that gonna cost me a billion dollars only if i had the guts to do this myself...hopefully i wont leak to much and my banjo bolt wont snap on me.

If your mechanically inclined its not that bad. I dropped my subframe when i did the clutch, it was a lot easier then i thought it was going to be.

you'll probably spend more on a good drill bit and tap than you would spend if you just brought it to a shop to have them do it. or ask a friend with a lot of tools, like my friends always do to me lol

depends on the sizes, but a 45/64 (going off the top of my head, i believe thats the correct size bit for a 1/2" tap) drill bit and 1/2" npt tap can cost about $50. then you risk the chance of messing it up.
