Sealing Brass Fitting That Screws Into Block For Oil Pressure

So I bought the fitting from ZZP that adapts an oil line to the threads of the main galley holes. I'm installing an oil feed line to my turbo and for those of you that installed oil pressure gauges or feed lines themselves, what did you use to seal the brass adapter that screws into the block? copper washer? pipe dope? (I know its not a pipe thread). I really don't want these to leak.

Anyone say differently? and if so why? also, should I torque it too the same spec as the oil gallery plugs? 26 ft. lbs.? I broke the last one from over tightening, but I just don't want it to leak

You'd think with a low 12 sec ECOTEC I might know my stuff alittle.

Also dont tighten that much, it's not the fitting making the seal. It's the teflon paste.

USE THIS & BE DONE! Permatex® Thread Sealant with PTFE

FWIW The oil galley plug uses the face of the bolt to make the seal, hence the torque spec.
