OIL Pressure sensor (best location?)

I'M thinking of adding an oil pressure gauge to my '96 7.3 and was wondering where is the best location to install the sensor? The stock sensor is located on top of the HPOP, sandwich adaptor and move it to the oil filter, or is there a better spot?

Good Point, Mainly Low oil pressure, but the factory dash gauge is run to a sensor on the hpop. should I run two separate oil gauges?

I have a 95 7.3. Someone once told me the dash guage is for the low pressure pump. Since I've owned truck 5 years. Oil pressure guage is always in the low range. Used to freak me out. I didn't know it went to hpop. Please report your results and how you did it if you have time.

The dash one is the low pressure oil, I have a high pressure oil gauge on my a pillar, they both work fine and read from 2 different things, my high pressure oil sensor is actually run to the wires just above the hpop on the front of the engine just behind the hpop reservoir
