Is it an easy project for me to do it on my own?

ridiculously easy if you go the route most people do

http://www.rallysportdirect.com/Gred...-Block-Adapter (has room for 2 bungs, I used to run oil temp/press off it)
GReddy Oil Sandwich Adapter
appropriate fitting for sensor (using 1/8PT)
run the line up to your cabin to your gauge
run power to gauge
tie down slack in lines

Overally, it's one of the easier gauges to install IMO.

Or use an adaptor for the oil galley plug under the intercooler, lots of options!

You may want to run a braided steel line to your firewall and mount the sensor there to isolate it from engine vibrations (atleast that's what my autometer instructions told me)
