I just bought an oil pressure gauge, oil temp gauge, and a boost gauge. I have the oil sandwich as well. I just have no idea how to install really. does anybody know of any install instructions or videos showing how to do them on any subaru close to an 06? that would help me out so much! thanks!!

Here's a video that I found helpful when I did mine:

I'll tell you though, I had a Prosport oil filter sandwich adapter plate and it didn't fit no matter how I tried it - there's a little metal pipe sticking straight down that just didn't allow the plate to sit flush. I had GrimmSpeed ported/polished/ceramic coated stock headers with a GrimmSpeed high flow crosspipe and stock heat shields removed and it just wouldn't work. I actually ended up selling the adapter on eBay and installing my oil pressure sensor using a galley bung on the top of the engine.

There are plenty of other write-ups and videos online, so just search and go through them so you're comfortable with the process.

I found the easiest way to wire them up was to use fuse taps in the fuse box down and left of the steering column inside the car. I also have my gauges mounted in a triple A-pillar pod, so that made the most sense for my application. If you choose to go with a clock pod or something else, you might want to consider wiring your gauges another way.

Do you know if the location above cylinder 3 is the same thread as the location under the alternator
