    I put my defi oil temp sensor in a fitting just below the turbo compressor outlet. Its a plug that uses a hex key to remove. When I ordered my gauges, Dan at godspeed sent me the adapter I needed to install it. This spot should work well for oil pressure too. Or you could get the oil filter sandwich adapter.

    For boost, just T into the line that goes to the BOV, and for EGT either weld a bung to your exhaust manifold, or drill & tap the manifold. Either way you're going to have to take the manifold off the car.

    I couldn't tell ya. I bet if you gave dan @ godspeed a call he could tell you, or even sell you one for cheap.

    Are you measuring the oil pressure under the intercooler? If so you can get Subaru p/n 11024AA210 which replaces the hex-plug with a 1/8-BSPT tapped plug. Then check your manual to see what you have (if you have imperial gauges it's probably 1/4-NPT so get a 1/8-BSPT to 1/4-NPT adapter).

    That's what I did, it works great and was simple to install. I got mine from Dan @ godspeed.

    From what I can find with a quick search, PT is the same as BSPT so you should be good to go.

    It makes sense that Defi and Subaru use the same threads so I think it's a safe bet that it will fit.
