Question benefit of sandwich adapter?

Sandwich Adapter is a sensor install adapter that slips in place where your oil filter is installed and your oil filter then piggy backs on to this adapter(hence sandwich). The sandwich adapter has 3 sensor input ports for installing Oil Pressure and/or Oil Temperature and can be a usefull install accessory but is not an absolute requirement.

are there any benefits to having the sandwich adapter? ease of install? multiple oil gauges?

Ease of install! It definitely beats having to dig around for the gallery plugs (including having to pull the IC) and it's pretty easy to reverse.

all i've read is threads ranting about how the sandwich adapter won't fit and the fitment issue isn't specific to one model year. user error or fitment issue?

I don't know what their problems would be. I would think the fitment issue would fall into two categories... 1) wrong size/thread extender and 2) clearance issues.

I believe both issues would be user error.

I had neither problem with mine. Sure, there would be a clearance issue if I wanted either sensor to point towards the pan (where there's very little clearance), but that restriction may only be 100° (out of the whole 360°).

This was the one I bought in November.

can you install a sandwich adapter and plug one of the holes? I only want to run oil temp at this time and don't want the hassle of galley plugs.

It should come that way.

The sandwich adapter that I got had three 1/8" NPT holes, two of which came plugged. I think this is standard for any sandwich adapter; they leave one port open, assuming you're going to put something into it immediately, and they put plugs in the rest.
