Default Ghetto oil pressure sender install

Ordered the main gallery plug from Subaru, which of course has metric threads. My Autometer sender of course has non-metric threads. I could only hand tighten the sender into the plug about a 1/4 to 1/2 a turn.

But I just cranked it down with some wrenches and that got me about 3 turns. Then JBWelded the thing together. Instructions say its good to 600F. I think that's good enough.

No problems so far.

And just like scoobymods says, you NEED a 17mm crows foot.

Reading from memory so far are about 90psi when engine is idling during first startup. Idling after warmup is 30psi. Cruising after warmup is around 75psi.

I'll take some notes here soon and post the results.
