Default Installing Guages ?

Am getting ready to install a dash pod on my 2002 wrx, & have a couple questions. First, is how do most hookup for oil temp & oil pressure, do you use a sandwich adapter, or do you use the oil gallery plug on the block & T it? How does everyone hookup the water temp gauge, where do you install the sensor. Any help appreciated. Thanks

If you install a galley plug with hose & T, there won't be any oil in the hose under normal conditions! You will be measuring air pressure, which is being pressurized by the oil. That's fine for pressure, but won't work for temp. Temp HAS to be in contact with the oil, so if you want both sensors, the temp needs to be a sandwich or oil plug adapter.

The easy way? Hose adapter block. You cut the hose somewhere and fit the adapter in. Some aftermarket radiators have bung locations.

Really don't want to have to cut the hose, could care less if it wasn't silicone. Any other way to mount it?

either the two options above, thats about it if you want reliable readings. you MIGHT be able to remove one of the two plugs on the bottom of the block and find an adapter you could screw a sensor into.
