Default Oil pressure guage

I am trying to install my oil pressure guage and don't know where to tap for oil. I have the rear galley plug used for oil supply to my turbo, and the front already has the stock presure sender. I have a T that I could put in one of the galley plugs, buts its 1/8" NPT not BSPT. To add to the problem, my oil pressure sender is NPT, but if needed I can get an Autometer NPT to BSPT adapter for that. Does anyone know where I can get a 1/8" BSPT T? Or some other way to hook up my oil pressure?

Where did you find that adapter on ThinkAutos' website? I didn't see it anywhere. Is there anywhere else that sells the same adapter?

Great install instructions. I didn't realize that an adapter was needed for the oil pressure install.

the adapter makes it ALOT EASIER

and no oil light in the dash cause you can still use the stock sensor
