Re: oil Pressure

Where to put the gauge?

Typically on a "A" pillar pod. Make sure you don't use the nylon hose as they typically leak and that would get very very messy. Why do you want an additional gauge? Is your factory not working?

Or where to feed the gauge from?

There is an oil feed line that comes out the top of the block in the back. The factory sending unit may be attached here and you will need to tee into that for a source.
