Default Oil Pressure Gauge Solution

http://www.glowshiftdirect.com/Oil-F...-Adapters.aspx

Anyone tried something like this? There was talk of it on BITOG forums and it seems like a neat solution, and reasonably priced. This way you would not need to remove a plug from the block, or add an adapter to the idiot light location.

Anyone know the stock threads on the oil filter?

My only concern would be any flow restriction from adding something like to the oil filter.

Every couple weeks or so someone brings up how to install an oil pressure gauge, and most are scared away due to the procedure of installing one. This might help, a lot.

Thoughts? Comments?

looks good, and to add to it with the filter base spaced off the block a larger oilfilter like a PH8A (mopar, small block ford) style filter should fit and not hit the belt guard do to its larger Diameter.

Only clearence that becomes questionable is how close does the larger filter get to the half shaft.

For seven dollars more, you can buy an oil cooler adapter with two ports for oil temp/pressure senders. Just look on the glowshiftdirect site for "/oil-cooler-sandwich-adapter-3-4-unf-16-thread".

I'm seriously thinking of ordering this even if I loop/bypass the oil cooler holes for now. I doubt it's set up to work if they're just plugged. My daily driver is getting older(340K miles on original '97 SL2) and I want to monitor the oil pressure. Any thoughts on this? Obviously, the regular sandwich adapter is a quicker install. Reaching the oil filter area is quick and easy through the right wheel well, and you don't even need to get under the car.
