Default Oil Sandwich Adaptor for Prosport Oil Pressure Gauge?

Like the title says...just curious if anybody is running an Oil Sandwich Adaptor for a Oil Pressure/Temp Gauge and if you had any issues. I ordered mine from machv motorsports: Oil Pressure with the sadwich adaptor....Went to do the install this weekend...gauge hooked up with no issues, but the oil sadwich adaptor doesn't fit my oil filter. It's a upgraded mobile 1 filter, but it should should still fit regardless...Only thing that I can think of is that the oil sadwich filter is the wrong one....directions list many makes and subaru is lacking it's the only thing I can come up with...Any tips/help would be nice, thank you

search, there was just a thread about this.

I am running the PS adapter and am using the OEM Subaru replacement filter and have had no problems.

I had a fitment issue with my oil adapter and hooked up my oil pressure sensor to the stock outlet just to the left of the alternator.

If you remove the stock sensor you do not get a CEL code either.

It was a piece of mind that the sandwich is not leaking oil.

I have been running the sandwich adapter that Prosport sells for my oil pressure. I have done 4 oil changes and about 12k miles with no leaks/no problems.

I have the maddad one and it fits fine with oem or aftermarket filters...

Sound like you either have the wrong adapter or the wrong filter. Sure you got it on properly?

Got pics?

Sandwich plates FTL. Use the top Oil gallery plug. I used a M NPT x F x F BSPT T-fitting and it worked killer. My press sender is horizontal with the temp probe vertical. Cleanest install I've ever seen if I do say so myself.

Do you mean which grommet in the firewall? Or how did I route the lines from the bottom of the block to the top of the engine and then through the firewall?
Any how, use the grommet that is on the driver's side just behind the intercooler, it is easiest if you remove the IC before. Running the wires up from the bottom you can zip tie the wires for the sensors to the radiator fan housing, and then up, run it along the back of the radiator and hug the side of the car...behind the fuse box and about up to the strut tower, and through the hole. Zip ties are your friends in this install. Hope this helps
