The front plug is tight as hell and almost requires the sending unit be mounted remotely.

So IMHO rear galley is for temp; front galley is for pressure.

Great diagram BTW. You can easily identify both galley plugs at the same time. More helpful information in this thread .
This thread is about oil pressure sender sir. On a side note, Oil temp goes to the oil pan, or at least the OEM subaru oil temp gauge package comes like this with a small adapter and probe that is screwed into the oil pan drain hole. The reason I made the illustration is because i see them removing factory parts for no good reason, it also requires more work, and that front location makes it so the sender has to be shoved under the intake manifold or something like that were false knock could be created if its just left to vibrate under the intake. Put it in the rear location quickly, with less work, and have many options for mounting the sender in a safe secure location.
