gauge bits/accessories....help please!

i'm thinking of purchasing a dual oil pressure/oil temp mechanical gauge for a double 'A pillar pod' i've had sitting around for a while (boost gauge will sit in the second pillar compartment). are there any techys on here who could tell me if the oil pipe and connectors below are the correct ones, and would i need all of them? i will not be fitting it myself but want to make sure i'm buying the right attachments.
also, when i buy the gauge itself, does a 9ft capillery sound right?
cheers BB.

p.s sorry i aint been on here for a while, hope everything is good, and before you ask, for those who know,.....i'm still waiting on a court date


Description:[ RACETECH DUAL GAUGE OIL PRESSURE 100PSI/OIL TEMPERATURE 140C
USE WITH OIL PIPE LMA003, CONNECTOR LMA007 AND SUITABLE ENGINE T PIECE: 1/8NPT (PRE-711M & ESSEX) LMA010 OR 1/4NPT (MOST OTHER FORDS) LMA011. USE ADAPTOR MOCTGA4A FOR TEMP SENDER LOCATION.

heres the link to the page. https://www.burtonpower.com/dets_pro...=15009&PSet=98

cheers. maybe an electrical gauge is a safer option anyway, (no risk of hot oil landing on your lap!)

pockets not deep enough i'm afraid. i think it's gonna cost enough getting the boost and oil gauges fitted neaty into the Apillar pod as it is. and finding someone to do it is seeming problematical in itself . if i go to subaru themselves they'll charge me an arm n a leg.

tbh, both mate, both show problems but both dont, um bit of a crap answer that lol.

if oil temp gets too high you can do engine dmagae, if oil pressure gets to high or low it does damage, oil pressure wont tell you temp issues, oil temp wont show you pressure issues.

so tbh, you could do with both

only have room for two gauges in the Apillar pod...boost gauge of course and one other. i did want a dual oil temp/pressure but i can only find mechanical ones, and as stated above, not too sure about oil pipe being fed into cabin.

Not hard to fit just follow instructions.... Electrical gauges are without dought a better buy. Oil temp is more usefull that oil pressure. I found deffi's the best buy but they are not cheap.

well , to answer all the above questions/answers, i have already purchased a double A pillar pod so thats the road i'm now going down. oil temp will definately be of more use (cheers bob, p.s. you need to empty your private message folder m8). and a 360 degree 'stealth gauge' fits my pocket very nicely.
