There is a galley plug located by the alternator, or more common, the one underneath the throttle body near a coolant line. The easiest way is to get an oil sandwich adapter and put it on your oil filter.

I have been doing a lot of searching on this also, and there are many threads out there. The sandwich adapter is the easiest solution, but I'm wary of it. Too many points of failure. There's a galley plug under the alternator where the stock oil pressure sensor is hooked up. It's BSPT, I believe, so depending on your gauges you might need to get an NPT galley plug.

Just a few min ago, I purchased a oil pressure sensor install kit and a NPT galley plug from www.prosportgauges.com. The install kit has a braided steel line that goes into the block on one end, and your oil pressure sensor on the other. The NPT plug by itself is for the oil temp sensor. If there's room under the alternator for the temp sensor, I'll put that there and run the remote kit to the galley plug under the TMIC for pressure. Don't use a kit like that for temp, as the sensor needs oil flowing past it to work properly.

Here are a couple of links I found, but there are plenty more with loads of info.

(this one has a pic of the remote pressure sensor install kit)

Good luck with the install!
