I have ordered some things now - and from a friend of mine who has this currently installed

Oil Temp sensor in top galley with a galley plug - seems to fit just fine


Pressure sensor with an extended line in stock location (Sounds like no negative effects)


Again - I'm not saying that I know for a fact that this works, but I will find out real quick.

I believe this is a GREAT location for the Oil Temp gauge sensor.

Photobucket is sucking a lot!

I have my oil temp gauge in an oil filter sandwich plate. It's going to be very near the pan temp as it's pumped straight from there and doesn't go through a cooler. I've used this method on 3-4 different vehicles.

I tried a few different things but ended up using a sandwich plate re-tapped for the senders for my gauge, after some months I think this is the best solution. Some pics here: www.billswebspace.com/FRSRS2.html

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I wanted to add my info here as well. As Bill did, I used a TRD sandwich plate for the Defi pressure gauge and used a remote sender. Extremely easy, clean install.
I would recommend for anyone already using the gallery port as a turbo oil feed.
Just make sure to use teflon tape on the fittings being threaded into the ports on the adapter plate
Adding photos for future generations to see.

Remote sender comes from sandwich plate and goes under the intake manifold. I attached the pressure sensor to a tab on the back of the intake manifold, and have the wiring routed back to the driver's side, behind the brake booster, through the grommet in the firewall to the driver's side footwell.

Shameless plug here, but we carry a bunch of sender adapters for pressure and temp. The nice thing about using an adapter is that is adds the minimal amount of additional potential leak points vs remote or sandwich adapters.



Just a pic for reference, we make these in other sizes too...

You can view/log oil temp through any obd2 device that can read PIDs, but no pressure. I imagine bluetooth isn't really reliable enough yet to be piped through the firewall and be stable enough for popular companies to jump on board with it
