In-line filter

I've just crawled around under car to find best place for an in-line filter.
To fit it in the line from the scavenge pump to the oil tank, I reckon I'd have to drop the engine a bit, so I could it but I really don't want to do that if I can avoid it.
The best location, and easiest to get to for maintenance, would be fit the filter between the end of the hose and the tank. Hopefully, I can buy the correct sized fittings to do a bolt-on without modifying anything.

Can anyone tell me what is the fitting size for this tank connection?

As far as turbo cooling is concerned, to get more air through the area around the turbo, I have removed the rubber seal between top of bumper and the body. This gives about half inch gap all accross the back of the car as well as the holes in the bumper. This isn't really noticeable unless you are looking for it.
1988 Carrera - 3.6 engine (with ITBs, COPs, MS3X) and a whole set of turbo body panels waiting in the attic.
Day job ...
