If you want a cheap adapter, use the LS1 sender, break off the black plastic part.. gut it down to the metal threaded part. Drill and tap it to the correct 1/8" NPT Threads (or ?).. Cost = nothing !

autometer makes an adapter, summit racing sells it. i had to use on on an ls6 syclone we just built so we could still use the syclone sending unit and stock guage.
