    The only pressure sensor on the car is a switch, which only activates above 1500rpm. It will only flash a light on the dash if the pressure drops. You can fit a pressure sensor on the oil filter and then have a gauge in the car. There is a spare thread hole on top of the oil filter you just need to remove the hex plug and install the sensor. Pick one up from ebay for about £30 in PSI.

    located on the right side of the oil cooler, under the inlet manifold, you will need a 24 spanner to remove it. you also need to remove the oil feed on the cooler to the turbo. cost me £14 from audi last month
