Installing an OIL PSI guage, where can i put the sending unit?
Friday, May 03, 2013 5:50 AM
ok so i have a set of fairly new GlowShift guages from my 00 z24 2.4, that im about to install in my 02 LSS, iv never had the oil psi guage hooked up tho, it came with an electronic sender, where on the block would there be a "plug" i can remove to install the sender? i kinda looked and wasnt sure what was what, hoping you guys know a place right where i can screw the sender in without installing a T on the existing sender or removing it, i still want the factory sender for the dummy light to be there and work and am trying to avoid using a T, thanks everyone,
its a 2002 LSS 2.2 Eco auto

I use the front head bolt on the driver side. the rear one doesn't seem to get proper pressure.
except I have a mechanical one in there now. and id use one of the much slimmer oil sending units, that one in the pic is bulky and you have to extend the connection from the head a lot of times to get the sender to screw in.

Good luck with that sender, you'll be replacing it within 6 months.

I've gone through 3 and now the gauge has taken a dump and pegs at 100 psi even with new wiring and a new sender.

You really do get what you pay for with Glowshift!

I am wondering about this, as I have the rear port feeding my turbo and after it warms up I am lucky to see 15 psi of oil there..... thinking about moving it to the front port as well. I know that there is a restrictor in the head that feeds that rear port.

I put my sender in the factory location since my idiot light wasn't working (apparently). I suppose that's not exactly an option for everyone, but it worked for me.

Buy the metric adapter for the block, then get a T, thread the stock sender into one part of the T, thread the glowshift sender into the other part of the T.
