Gauge Install Questions

Just a some work to the truck New Oil cooler EGR delete Coolant filter and engine flush swapped to Zerex ELC coolant and picked up some ISSPRO guages
Pyro, Coolant Temp, Oil Temp and Air Temp (just to see what my intake air temps are and fill an extra spot on the 4 gauge overhead mount).
My question is im looking for the best place to mount the sending unit for the Oil Temp without using the pre tapped billet cap. A few ides would be helpful trying to find the cleanest and most optimal place for temprature. also any other ideas for the coolant temp loc would be helpfull as well currently thinking of the little plate in the engine valley seems alot of people drill and tap that. Like i said any ideas would be helpful thanks

Your choice for oil is either the billet cap or "T" into the factory oil temp/psi sensor.

Unless you want to try and get to the factory oil psi test port, but that's a p.i.t.a to get to with the intake on.

I plan on attempting this in a few weeks when I add a few more gauges.

I asked this question to NUC motorsports and they advised me that the oil temp will not be the same from the cap as it is from the engine. So if you want actual oil temps, get it somewhere in the engine, but I wouldn't know where either. I'm thinking the factory oil pressure sensor to the dashboard gauge. It's on top of the oil cooler.

That makes no sense. Oil goes thru the oil cooler first, then it enters the oil filter housing (oil cap), then goes to the factory oil temp.

If anything they will be within a couple of degrees, not enough to worry about.
