Good place to hook up an oil pressure guage?

Ran a search o this, and couldn't come up with anything. Where are you guys hooking up your oil pressure guages. I'll be installing a guage package on the piller, and want to do a quad mount. Boost, pyro, trans temp, and oil pressure. Or should I go with something other than that? Opinions

Fuel pressure is probably more to worry about than oil pressure, you still have the dummy gauge in which if it drops below a certain pressure (the low pressure side of the motor) it'll kick on the light and then the factory gauge will move to 0.

It wouldn't hurt to have both oil and fuel though.

Cool, where is a good place to tap into the fuel line?

You can use the filter bowl housing for one; a few vendors probably sell a fitting that'll be able to screw into the bowl, and then 1/8NPT male thread be able to screw into that (Ie; Sending unit).

Such as this;

Stock I think is 50-60 PSI at idle without being shimmed to 70, someone can correct me if I'm wrong.
