Default has anyone drilled into the oil sandwich adapter for a gauge?

I'm currently running one half of an oil sandwich adapter for my oil temp gauge sensor since I don't feel like pulling my intake manifold to access the oil galley.

I need an oil cooler now though, so I was thinking about drilling an additional hole in the sandwich adapter to run the gauge sensor. Has anyone done this?

Thanks!
Ambert

We use the galley plug for the low oil dash light for the sender. All you should have to pull is the alternator that way.

Same. A friend of mine helped with the install and said this was the way to go. I got a remote oil pressure sending kit to shift around the sender.

you can put senders in either of the top galley plugs without pulling the manifold. For the front one all you need to do is take off the alternator, and since you're installing a pressure gauge that little 2psi warning light becomes even more useless.

For the front galley you pull the altenator.

For the rear galley you pull the TMIC and move the recirc valve hose out of the way.

Done many pressure in the front galley and temperature in the rear galley and never once considered pulling the manifold.

I like the plug at the back of the #1 and #3 main galley. It'll show you the true pressure flowing to your heads and that is sustained across the oil galley. I really wish I could pick up 2/4 galley instead but the coolant crossover pipe blocks the rear of that one.
