Default Question about Omori Oil Pressure Gauge Install

I am about to install the omori oil pressure gauge, I am going tap it to the oil gallery plug under the alternator. So the question, do i need to lose all the engine oil to do the install?

Why not use the one under the IC? You can just get an adapter plug from Subaru and it becomes as simple as plug-and-play.

Default I doubt it.

Oil drains down to the bottom when the engine is off. I just put my sending unit in (14th) near the intercooler and I didn't see any oil at all.
The problem with my chosen location is the crankcase vent tee. It caused some interference. I had to use hose clamps to keep one one the lines on....
Just something to consider...

I dun use the one under the ic, becoz i am going to install oil temp there.

one more question, since i have omori gauges, so there is 1 red power, 1 white power, and 2 black ground wires that i need to hook up. and i am going to hook them up to the clock harness. so do i hook up the red power to switch 12v, and white power to illumination, and should i put all the ground to the same wire on the clock harness?

Default I wouldn't.

Whichever wires are for illumination, you should connect with the spare harness coming off of the clock. That way your dimmer switch works. Both power and ground!
Switched power or battery power can be connected at the clock and ground as well.
Basically you don't want to share illumination ground with anything else because the ground is how Subaru controls the dimmer.
Taking the radio out isn't hard compared to the clock!
