amc49 That'll work, I always at least notch out to edge the lower bracket screw holes to allow hand threading bolts in further, the access there sucks. Somebody wanted to make sure that even if the wheels fell off, that coil was staying brother.

ZXthrizzle05 no it does not matter wich port you use. it was easier for me to run the feed line from the exhaust side because the thermostat was easy to take a dremmel and shave down to make fit easier. and same with the coil pack. I cut one leg off to allot space for the npt fitting

Magus2727 I like that... "NPT is an abomination".

teamDFL It is NPT, there is no right place. NPT is an abomination. Threads are for fastening, not sealing. But, yes, I got it to feel about right and then clocked it how I needed it.

Magus2727 Does it tighten perfectly to that angle? or did you use a good PTFE thread sealer / locker and kept it just a hair loose or did you over-tighten it? That looks like a little to perfect of a place to stop.

This is for a mechanical gauge which is what you want, IMO.
Nice,I tried that spot first and stripped the hell out of the the fitting.

Not odd at all. Gauges that don't match bother me tremendously.

Would their be any significant temp difference between the two ports, that it would be better to use the intake port side as the oil feed? Guessing the oil is generally all the same temp so would not mater.
