Default 2.5 oil pressure locations

Other than the spot under the alternator, are there any other places to get oil pressure from? Someone in the thread about the sender install noted that there was a much easier way to do it, but he never posted the pics.

There was someone (can't remember the name right now) that was using a sandwich adapter for an oil cooler, but instead of hooking up an oil cooler, he put oil temp and pressure in the openings.

This question have been asked many time, I'm sure you'll find many other locations. But since I got nothing better to do, I did a search for the oil filter sandwich for you.

There is a plug you can take off on the passenger side of the engine towards the rear that is also an oil line that you can thread an adapter onto. And the other way was through an oil filter sandwich.

Yeah, it's amazing what searching can do.

I found the secondary oil gallery plug under the throttle body and intake, which is 1/8 BSPT. I have an Autometer sending unit which is 1/8 NPT. So, I ordered a 1/8 BSP male -> 1/8 NPT male adapter, along with a 1/8 NPT female pipe coupler from Pegasus Racing for $10. The part numbers are 3230-2-2NPT and 3280-02, respectively. I hope the BSP/BSPT conversion will work out...

So, I hope to unplug the plug in the oil gallery(w/ allen wrench), then screw in the male->male adapter. Then screw on the female pipe coupler with the Autometer sending unit on top that. I think there is enough clearance, and this way there are no lines to run except the sending wire to the gauge.

It will be a week or so until I get the parts, so I will post pictures when everything gets done. That is, if it all fits correctly.


Now to find a place to weld on my EGT bung...

If you go to cobb you'll see the greddy oil filter adapter thingy sitting on the shelf , it has openings that I think you can use for the sender unit.

I believe the Greddy is BSPT, and I am trying to avoid using the sandwich adapter because I don't want to damage anything during repeated oil changes.
