Alternate Oil Pressure Sensor Install Location at rear of cylinder head -2007 GT
Everyone seems to mount their autometer oil pressure gauge sensor near the factory location by the oil filter with a T, but I already had a T their for my turbo kit as that is where my turbo gets it's oil. So when I recently installed my oil pressure gauge I wanted a different location that is not so tight. I saw autometer mentioned another location on the drivers side near the back of the engine from the topside, at the rear of the cylinder head. Sure enough, you just remove the plug with an allen wrench, and add one fitting from your local harware store (get a 3/8" npt "brass 90 degree street elbow" and use autometer reducer that came with the gauge), and presto...done! See my pic of the sensor installed (taken from under the hood). A small mechanics mirror is helpful to use to see the port. Also don't forget to use teflon tape. You will need to install just the street elbow into the motor by itself, then it is best to install autometer's included adapter to the sensor, and then screw in the sensor to the 90 elbow.
