HELP: Oil Pressure gauge install

I am about to order three Glowshift 7 series gauges -
1. Fuel pressure gauge w/ the GS relocation hose and the GS fuel pressure adapter
2. Boost gauge
3. *Oil pressure gauge*-*I need help on knowing where to install the oil pressure gauge and whether I need a t fitting adapter and a relocation hose.*

Lastly, If anyone has any tips for me on installing the fuel pressure gauge I am all ears.

Thank you in advance

Are you sure you don't want to go with a CS or CTS monitor? You can monitor many more PIDs through the OBD II system. Those not readable via OBD can be read with sensors and adapters connected with the EDGE Accessory System. It's not terribly cheap but it makes for a clean install and works well. I've added sensors to get coolant pressure, LPOP PSI, post BPD oil cooler oil temp, fuel pressure, etc., and can monitor 8 parameters at one time with the CTS.

For fuel pressure get the Sinister fuel pressure adaptor with ss hose. Works well.

Just my $.02.

I do have the edge CTS and I love it, but I like the look of gauges and the price to get the fuel pressure was just ridiculous.

I have an Edge CTS and I too am going with a couple of gauges to round out my triple pod on the pillar. I'm going with with with ISSPRO EV2s (oil pressure and high pressure oil pressure) and buying them 1 at a time so as not to shock the pocket. My fuel pressure is going on the EDGE along with the pyrometer and turbo monitor.

A question to the OP: Why would you want another boost gauge????

I read somewhere that the edge CTS is fooled by the computer and doesn't show true boost. Is that not true?

I have a boost sensor on the intake elbow and boost as a PID on the CTS. Even with SRL+ I have not seen more than 0.5psi difference. The max I have seen is 29 psi. I wouldn't bother with another boost gauge unless you plan to be over 30 psi.

I may just have it to have it but my main question is where do I install the oil pressure gauge??

For LPOP, most tee the oil pressure switch port. I put a sensor on the BPD remote oil filter head.

Where is that? And when you mean tee- do you mean putting a t fitting so I can use it for my GS gauge and also keep it for the stock gauge?

The gauge? Put it anywhere you want.

if your asking where to plumb it, most people would prolly use the test port on the front of the oil cooler housing. Or get an aftermarket oil filter cap with a threaded port and put the sender there.
