hey guys, i dont have my car on me as its getting tuned at the moment. So i'd like know where i can wire my electric oil pressure and temps to. i've got a oil sandwhich plate and relocator but neither have holes for the temp or pressure. do i have to buy another sandwhich plate for me to able to use the gauges or is there another way

There is a stock pressure sender next to oil filter location.
You will need to run a t piece for both sensors.

Iv seen a bad photo of somone who ran a t piece in the block and it shered off with the weight of the 2 sensors.
I would mount the 2 sensors and the t piece in another location and get a flexible hose made up from the block

what gauge do you have?

My Shadow Pro oil pressure came with a new sensor and was a direct bolt-on to the 4age. does your one have a senor for the gauge? what does the sensor plug look like?

oil temp would be the same as water temp, the sensor just needs to touch oil to give a reading so i guess you can drill in a hole into your sandwich plate and then tap threads into the drilled hole using "John's" thread taping kit.. just make sure there is a thread bit with same offset thread as your oil temp sensor

or just buy universal sandwich plate with holes lol

You could possibly get your existing plate drilled and tapped. Any small engineering shop could do that for you for minimal outlay and investment.

If you're running aftermarket gauges,I'd suggest pulling the factory sensor out,and sticking your aftermarket pressure sensor straight intoit's spot - the main oil feed gallery. Temp can go anywhere. I don't recommend T pieces,they are too easy to knock and damage.
