I suggest people to check this out: http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showt...12#post2310412

Hopefully I can use the pressure sensor relocating kit from fastwrx (no I do not by any means have anything to to with them) http://www.fastwrx.com/products/remo...re-sending-kit

And cross my fingers for that the mishimoto housing's place for sensors are big enough for the innovate temp sensor

Quick question. I ordered a innovate MTX pressure/temp gauge today. I am trying to get the required accessories ordered asap so I can instal when I get it.
For temp I have:
http://www.rallysportdirect.com/shop...hreaded-center
And
http://www.rallysportdirect.com/shop...ey-plug-gasket

For the pressure I wouldn't mind replacing the oem pressure or doing a T fitting. What parts/adapters would be needed for either one of those?
Are the two parts listed for the temp the correct ones?

DIY Request: install Oil Pressure & Temperature gauge

That is the wrong (NPT) galley plug for the innovate sender. You need the silver (PT) adapter.

See my post #8 for the autometer adapter for the pressure sender (p/n 2269). I would not recommend using a t adapter as it may break over time and create an oil leak. The gauge can be programmed to indicate low pressure.

Sweet. I got it all ordered. If I have any other issues I'll be sure to ask here!

Sorry for the confusion @FR-Shred I have corrected the part number. You need the 2269 1/8 bsp to npt adapter for the pressure sender

I'm looking for the exact same thing. Got the oil pressure sensor installed fine but have no idea how to actually wire the gauge up for power on my Blitz gauge. The instructions with it just say this:

Quote:
Red (+B): To battery(+); Constant 12V power
Orange(IGN): To power line with IGN ON
Yellow (ILM): To illumination power line
Black (GND): To battery (-); GND
But I don't know where to find a "power line with ignition on" and an "illumination power line" as I've never done anything with car electronics before.

I'm pretty sure I used a fuse tap on the seat heater for power and fog lights for illumination on my car. The fuse box lid will have a diagram for where these are located. There is also a convenient ground near the fuse box.

Also I believe the STOP fuse is a hot fuse (I.e 12v constant).

12v constant: There is one blank fuse slot which is constant 12v. You can use fuse tap there. Refer here http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1005795

12v ignition: siga jack in the glove box or stereo fuse slot.

Ground: choose whatever you can pick from bunch of ground points.

Dimmer: tap the purple wire from harness of factory dimmer switch

why don't you just get an m18x1.5 to 1/8 adapter and tap into the oil galley plug like you should?


For pressure only, you could also buy a T adapter disconnect factory sensor(green wire) and replace with the T adapter and both sensors plugged (can't also do temp here as it is not in the flow).

1/8 npt t shaped adapter is all you'll need if you already have the oil galley plug converter (temp in oil galley, pressure in stock location with the T) or as others have ssaid you can apparently just leave the stock sensor unplugged and it doesn't cause any adverse issues (no cel, no light, no problem)
