PWSC and oil pressure sender

I'd like to install electric oil pressure gauge but having troubles where to put sender. There is no access to rear side of engine block due to SC, I tried location behind coil pack but there isn't enough place either. Can I install it into oil filter relocation adapter? Will I get correct readings?

Looks like this http://www.glowshiftdirect.com/Produ...LERADAPTER.jpg
PW kit has an oil filter relocation kit but there are no 1/8 NPT ports for senders in it. But on remote part of that kit is 2 big probably 3/8 NPT ports with plugs. I'm thinking if I can somehow use those. Will I get correct reading there?
