    Im trying to install the oil press sender as well, after some searching I found a thread on putting the sendor under the intercooler on the engine block, I also think you can put the sender under the alternator.

    Cool

    those are the two galley plug locations. i have an oil pressure & temp gauge as well. im runnin my pressure off the back galley plug(under ic) & using a sandwich adapter for the temp(pegasusracing.com-$30 for the kit). but you can use both. but i figured it would be best to do it that way. the effects of boost!

    I used this part from JSC speed - 9 bucks well spent imo. It replaces the oil galley plug under the IC and allows for a 1/8" npt fitting/sender to be installed. That's what I did, but you will need an 18mm (If I remember right) offset box end wrench or crows foot to tighten it fully. The setup works great. Here's a link:

    Go to gauges/gauge pods, then click on fittings, etc. (there's a pic of the sandwich adapter). You'll see it at the top.

    Auto meter sells an adapter it is 1/8 male BSPT to 1/8 female NPT that is the adapter you need. I believe it is part number 2269. If you get it, it will probably be like $9 from a napa store but when u go to install it in the galley plug it will feel like it does not fit at first just make sure your threads are lined up and put some force on it, it will go. Good luck

    P.S. dont forget.....DO NOT USE ANY TYPE OF THREAD TAPE!!!! your sending units ground them selves out on the block of the car so tape could hurt that. use some thread locker and be on your way
