oil pressure gauge

I'm installing a OP gauge this weekend and I can't seem to find the oil galley on the block to screw the sender into...

That is the hard way. The way I did mine is as follows. I bought a greddy oil filter sandwich block adapter from rally sport direct.com. Install it between your engine and oil filter. It has pre-taped holes to screw the sending unit into. screw the unit into the block adapter. Hook up the wires. BAM your done. If you are intent on using the galley sorry I cant help you. Keep us posted on how you did it. Good luck!

the oil galley install is pretty simple. there are two plugs. one under the alternator and one on the block by the turbo compressor outlet. i used the one by the compressor. you'll need a crows foot wrench for sure to be able to tighten your sendor into the hole. here's a good link that shows you the two ways of doing it.

I would,like midnightblack suggested,use the one on the top of the block.You will have to take the TMIC off which takes like 5-10 minutes to do.

Did you do any type of trimming to get the sandwich block to fit? I am in the process of doing this mod to my wagon and it looks like it is going to be a tight fit.

Yes, I had to put a small notch in a heat shield.
