Sorry in advance for the thread hi-jack ?

Hello @Ultramaroon ! -


After all the discussion re: the South American guy's efforts to improve oil pressure / survivability, and then seeing your oil cooler sandwich configuration in the transmission strap support thread you started, I got to thinking about the location where I have my oil temp and pressure senders. Perhaps there are better spots?


Coming off the sandwich plate - I *think(!!) - Keyword* I have pressure on the line from the cooler, and the temp on the line to the cooler. So I know if the pressure drops and also know the oil temp before it gets to the cooler.


Your setup in the pics looks like you're obviously monitoring the oil temp and pressure at a different location. Thoughts / recommendations on better locations that what I am currently using?

Hi, Joe. No worries, man. I'd just as soon drop this thread into off-topic.

I think it's a toss-up for temp. Either the cooler is doing its job or it's blocked.

The pressure tap should be downstream of the filter. I can see a slight drop as I clock over 5 Kmi on my oil and it jumps back up if I change only the filter. That leaves either the factory pressure tap or the one at the front of the main gallery. I picked the main just for convenience but recently, as you also read, have learned that it is a better location to monitor pressure delta as a function of temp.

Does it really matter? Meh, probably not.

The one at the front of the main gallery = the plug here, below and to the driver side of the throttle body right?

Yup. Get a really good accurate socket head driver. That plug is unbelievably tight.
