    Some time zone
    use the location where the stock oil pressure gauge is (unscrew the stock sender, and screw in the mech. gauge line/fitting).... its located on the drivers side of the block, to the left of the oil filter....

    You have to run a fitting into the side of the block where the factory oil pressure switch is. If you want to keep the factory switch (which you will) you'll need to make a Tee out of some plumbing fittings, then run the oil pressure line inside the car and attach to the gauge. It's not much fun in an SN95 car because it's pretty tight workspace to get to that switch. :) Ask me how I know? lol
