i used the front block location for oil pressure. the one that was used for the dummy light. i moved the dummy light to the rear port and made a small little jumper wire for the harness. also used it as the feed line location for the turbo as well.

Have you had any issues with the light coming on with the dummy switch at the rear port? I got this sender 360-004 150 PSI / 10 Bar Pressure Sender: 0-150 PSI/10 Bar - 1/8-27 NPT - 10-180 Ohms - Single | VDO Gauges | eGauges.com. Will there be fitment issues with the front port? I'm out of state and can't check.

i had/have zero issues with it. the dummy light is pretty useless anyway. ive read that it comes on when its too close to being too late. i pay attention the aem gauge. runs about 13-15psi at idle. cruising at 55-60mph, its runs in the high 60's psi.

i cant speak on fitment issues with that sender. mine was all packaged together with my gauge (aem).

If the sender is too tall should I be able to use a 45 degree adapter or would I need a relocation kit?

Ok. I just got back and plan on install them soon. How much wiring do I need? Would 100 feet be enough?

100 feet would be enough to rewire the entire car. Exaggeration, but you don't need much more than 10, and that'd be routing it as out of the way as you could.

mine all came with it in the box. it seems like overkill as i had to zip tie large sections to get it out of the way behind the console.

One last question for this. It saying in the instructions that "14-gauge wire is required for gauge ground; it must be a dedicated ground to insure gauge accuracy and to eliminate any erratic gauge readings.". Would using a 16 gauge wire instead like all the other wires going to cause a problem? Do I need to ground it to the battery or can I use the radio bracket if I have to use 14 gauge? I was going to wire the ground to the radio harness.
