Re: oil pressure guage

i don't know why you couldn't just do like everyone else and T off the block where the O/P sending unit goes in. just remove it and get a proper T fitting. like GB said though, check the DIY threads for the right sizes and such. hell, there may even be part numbers in there somewhere....

Re: oil pressure guage

we will have to see ill try and machine one of those addaptors with a few mods to make it fit nice and snug... i put a pressure guage in on my 13b turbo rx4, an autometer one but that was a walk in the park compared to this...being a dry sump you can tap into it anywhere lol... looks like i got a big weekend ahead...

Re: oil pressure guage

you can T it into the line anywhere. At the oil cooler is fine, I had it there once, measured no difference between the cooler inlet and the block outlet.
