Re: Oil pressure gauge

best place is where the oil pressure warning light connection is situated under the alternator.

will need a t piece so you can keep the warning sensor in place.
blah blah blah

Re: Oil pressure gauge

some oil pressure sender units are too big to fit under the alternator even with a T piece
if you can get it in the back oil gallery hole it is better look down the back of the engine just in front of the turbo pipe that goes to the intercooler you will see a 10mm alan bolt head about the size of a 10p piece (bit tricky & may have to remove the intercooler)take this out and fit an adaptor into the block 22mm metric thread to npt make sure you fit a good seal to the fitting (pirtek do a bloody good one part number Q22)
