Just want to throw in my $.02.
I installed my oil pressure gauge today using this DIY relocation kit. Worked beautifully.
The only hose they had at Home Depot was 18" long. Looks identical to the OP's pic though so i'm not sure if he was mistaken in his post on the length.
I say this because 18" is perfect, I wouldn't want it any shorter.
Just FYI if anyone runs into the same thing, don't fret, 18" works fine.
I Teflon taped everything and no leaks. I used the front galley plug under the alternator.

Bump it up rather than start new, I've got everything but the PSNUT oil galley plug from prosport.

http://prosportgauges.com/subaru-oil-galley-plug.aspx

Since I got the female to female brass fitting from the same aisle, now I'm thinking, why hasn't anyone used a 1/8 male to female instead of the oil galley plug?

If you guys are trusting the female to female, can't I trust a male to female to bolt to the block?

This is the only variation I'm seeing, I'm tired of fighting with this sandwich adapter (unrelated 2.5L life), and would like to utilize the free time I've got rather than wait for a prosport galley plug.

Because the hole in the block is bigger. It's not 1/8th NPT like the adapter.

Hey I can't post a new thread but this seems in topic. My 06 2.5i is leaking oil as a sieve.. It's coming from a sensor on the top left hand side of the motor.. I've seen that oil pressure sending unit is under the alt?? Is this also an oil pressure sending unit?? Or is it another name etc?? Any help greatly appreciated..

For those that have used this method, how are the hoses holding up after a while? My main concern is that the hose is designed to hold the pressure, but can it stand the heat, vibration, etc.?

Thanks to the OP for sharing this great idea!

does anybody/the OP know what gauge pod this is? in the pic/video it looks like it's integrated with the cluster bevel, but i've only seen these for 2008+ wrxs...not for any of the earlier years.

So to confirm, the stock oil pressure sending unit serves no purpose? It's just there, collecting dust under the alternator? Much like the white PCV "sensor" that connects to the inlet back by the turbo?

I'm going to be giving this a shot in a totally different (more volatile) climate, extreme heat on a daily driven built engine. I will try to update with my findings/results.

If you guys have an 11/32 drill bit and a 1/8''-27 NPT tap you can source an M18 x 1.5mm oil drain plug from an auto parts store in stead of ordering a galley plug online. I got mine from O'Reilly's for about $3 and it took me about 20 minutes to step drill it and tap it.

Wow, nice idea. I have prosport oil pressure gauge at home and it hasn't installed yet. I like your idea. I'm gonna buy it all at home depot. Cheaper is better than nothing. Thumb up!!

I bought 18' gun grease hose and 1/8 brass coupling at home depot. I'm not sure what you use dielectric grease to put on it. Where to put dielectric grease on it?

It goes on the sender contacts. Silicone tape on threads. Mine still looks brand new after a year of use.
