Default Oil Sandwich Plate Adapter...

Just wondering your inputs on the sandwich plate adapters...pros? cons? V.S. oil galley plug location...and what you all are running and why..thinking about getting some gauges in the future and would like to know from some personal experience.

Well, i just installed gauges and the oil galley seems more efficient. thats what i'm running, thanks to Jerry at Conti. We were going to use the oil filter sandwich, but with my car, there's no clearance for it and the sending unit. Oh, well. The oil galley is a more permanent location for the sending unit. It is also much more involved. If you do it yourself, be prepared to be patient and spend alot of time on it to do it right. Jerry can probably tell you more.

i doubt there is clearance. Here is a pic of mine and how tight it is with just one sending unit. If thats your case, and you want 2, you'd be better off with the sandwich.

i've seen this done with a small flex hose to relocate the senders where there's more room. i'd still rather tap a main galley then use the filter adaptor.

You don't drill anything, you remove the oil galley hex plug and insert the oild galley adapter, then screw in the sending unit.......that is how subi does it when they add the gauge pack on the dash

id get the greddy for ease of install. and its easier to remove sensors if you need to. just go up under the car where the oil filter is and unscrew them. as far as accuracy, oil pressure is pretty straight forward probably better at the bottom of the motor than the top because it take pressure to circulate oil through the filter and temp will be better at the bottom near the oil filter with an adapter because it will always be in the oil. also this way you may not need to remove the intercooler.
