Default Where to mount Defi BF oil temp/pressure gauges?

As title says, where should I mount the Defi BF oil temp/pressure sensors for these gauges?

Is the best way to do this just put it with oilfilter with a sandwich adapter? Or where is the best way to mount these babies?

Thanks

I put my temp sensor in the rear oil gallery (under intercooler) and the oil pressure sensor in the front oil gallery (under alternator).

I used the front galley plug to install my oil pressure. I used the relocation kit and mounted the pressure sender right in front of my BPV on a fuel line bracket. Looks clean, doesn't move, and it's in the way of anything.

The sandwich adapter would probably be ideal if you have both pressure and temperature gauges to install, but it might require you to cut or bend your stock exhaust heat shield.

If your 07 WRX is a TR, you're gonna have some problems with fitment because there's a coolant hardline in the way and your header heatshield. Some have dremeled the heat sheild and bent the line about 1/8" out of the way to make it fit better. After fitment, you'll still have the problem of leaks. I would do what DUB did. Temp in back under IC with Galley plug here http://prosportgauges.com/subaru-oil-galley-plug.aspx and replace stock pressure dummy light up front under alternator and use this relocation kit http://prosportgauges.com/remote-oil...ation-kit.aspx . These parts are considering your senders are 1/8" NPT. If you decide to go for a sandwhich adapter, I've got a brand new prosport one, never been used for $30 shipped to your door. Otherwise do some searching using keywords such as (remote oil kit, relocation kit, etc) in the Electrical/Lighting forum.

That sandwich thing it's not a good idea. cuz reading numbers such as oli pressure from oil filter area is not the best way to get exactly pressure. but that's only my opinion,
i know someone who tried that sandwich and later on the gallery plug under the alternator and the reading was different about a few numbers between them.

it's a royal PITA if you want to use the gallery plug under the intercooler...
I did one for under the alternator and one for under the intercooler

Damn got plenty of better advice then mine. Yeah I guess the sandwich adapter won't work that good.

Thanks
