    Hello,
    I am thinking about add some gauges to A shaft (between left door and front glass) I have driving wheel on left, but I have some questions before. I cannot find here thread what I want about instaling gauges and sensors.
    Boost tube I have already instaled, but do you know if is easy to instal sensors for OIL temperature and OIL pressure (are here some instruction to do this?) If is so hard I only put there boost gauge.
    Thank you

    in some tuning forum I read that this oil sensors can be placed to the oil tube which is going to turbo. What is your opinion?

    Hi there,
    The boost gauge will need an ignition live and earth for the light in the gauge,
    I think there is a blanking plug in the oil filter housing you can remove and fit an oil preasure sensor into.
    As for the oil temperature im not sure and i havent found a thread on here where this has been done,

    Can plug the oil temp gauge in the same place, theres also the sump plug too, alot of people replace the sump plug with a sender.

    Covered loads on SCN paul.
