Looks like a V-band housing to me. So no you don't weld anything to it directly. You need to get a V-band flange and that is what you weld your downpipe to, which then inturb clamps to u'r exhaust housing.

Also the oil feed line is the larger one right ? and comes through the top of the turbo, and the oil return is the small steel briaded line right ?
Exactly the opposite actually. The feed is the braided line, and the drain is the larger rubber hose.

lastly what kind of vacume line, and were does it go ? (the one closer to the exhaust turbine)
The vacuum lines are for your wastegate (the actuator w/ the rod going to the exhaust housing). They go to your manifold and boost controller.

thanks again for your help
