Vanos supply line banjo size?

Does anyone know the size/dimensions/thread pitch of the banjo bolt on the vanos line on the front of our engines? (#10)

Im trying to find a banjo adapter with a NPT thread on the other side to complete my home made 50$ vanos pressure tester but cant seem the find the specifics on this bolt to find one that matches. Thanks in advance!

I just measured my banjo bolt that goes to my vanos pressure tester and the thread pitch is 1.5.

Edit: I used a thread pitch gauge to check the pitch and used a lug bolt to verify that it's 12mm.
A lot of 12m x 1.5 on this car. All the lug bolts and the drain pan plugs too.

Can anyone confirm which threads are being used ? ( BSPP or NPT) Getting the impression that these bolts aren't NPT.
