Oil Pressure gauge install

Alright, as title states I will be attempting to install the 3 gauges I have which are Fuel Pressure, Boost, and Oil Pressure.

I have the CTS monitoring everything else, with egt probe coming in mail.

I know I can attach sensor on the fuel bowl until I get the billet cap for the fuel filter. My question is where would I mouth the oil pressure sensor until I can get the billet oil cap? and will it interfere with a bypass system if I choose to get down the road?? Or would I be better off just getting the steel line ran from both to the side of engine compartment to reduce vibration??

Boost should work right on the intake elbow? just drill and tap there??

Here is to hoping this won't be such a P.I.T.A.

Thanks in advance for any help and insight.

Personally I'd stay away from the cap mount feeds. I know many use them and don't have any problems but you can't beat the OEM caps as they are the perfect match for the OEM filters. Not really a good area to play around. As for the fuel pressure take it off the fuel filter housing and it would be a good idea to use braided hose to the fenderwell and mount the sensor there to as you pointed out reduce vibration, Also tee off the existing oil pressure sensor location. I had both my sensors mounted one off the tee and the other off the fuel housing and never experienced and problems but mounting it beside the fuel sensor on the fenderwell would be a good idea to reduce the vibration.

You can scratch NUC Motorsports off your "NO" list. The specs are good. Post #23.
