General LSX Automobile Discussion - question about teeing off of the oil sending unit
07-13-2012, 06:44 AM
ok guys, the build is getting closer and closer to be ready to have tuned, and i have a quick question. i have an oil temp sensor i'm wanting to hook up to the car, and plan on buying an oil cooler adapter with a 1/8 size thread for a sensor to plug in, but in the mean time, since i'm just trying to get the car running, i'm wondering if i can tee off the oil sending unit for my oil temp. i know it may not be the best place, but its better than no place at all. what i'm wondering is if i t off of it, will it affect the reading of the oil pressure if i do this? i already have the t made, and plan on putting it on the car after work, so any advice/guidance would be pretty sweet.

ive never done it myself but i cant really see a problem with it. worst case scenario the gauge may be a little sluggish

Why don't you put it here? All you got to do is tap it out. Messing with the one behind the intake is just asking for trouble.

@ nc98z, i plan on running an oil cooler, and i'm just going to get a plate that is already taped out, this is just temp so i can take it to the tuner next week and finally get this turd back on the road.

i honestly would tap the pan for it, i like to know what the tep of the oil is before the motor sucks it up again. that way you know your cooler or w/e is doing its job properly
