    adding gauges/need hookup locations

    I bought an oil pressure and a boost/vacuum gauges. Both electric. I know that I can cut the tube coming out of the BOV and tee that off for the boost gauge. My question is this: where can I put the sensor for the oil pressure?
    Pics will help, but I'm getting used to looking at the engine bay and probobly would be able to find what you are talking about.
    Thanks in advance
    Cheers, Joel

    Right behind the alternator... just slightly on the passenger side. Remove the original OP sensor and install the new one. NOTE: If you are not using an accessport, I cannot guarantee you won't get a CEL.... I'm honestly not sure. I know if you are using one, it will not affect it though.

    There are pics in my progress thread somewhere (signature)... you're not the first person that has asked me.

    Others may recommend an oil pressure sandwich adapter, or to tap into the brass fitting under the intercooler.... I've tried both, both failed.. i wouldn't recommend either.... thats just me though.

    I'm not a member of ScoobyMods, so I can't see the pics, but I got the other one. Thanks to both of you for the help.
