are the fittings to attach the stock lines, stock sensor, and aftermarket sensor attached via threaded (NPT) connections? if so, what size (i.e. 3/8" NPT) at each port?

the reason i ask is there is a difference in configuration between the focus and ZX2 hosuings. i'm assuming the focus only has one temp. sensor in stock form from looking at these pictures and pictures of a oem housings i have found online. the ZX2 housing has two separate sensors for the pcm and the gauge. it looks like i may be able to use both sensors on the top portion of this housing with an adapter for the gauge sensor (the pcm sensor is the same used in the focus). does this sound like a valid assumption and conclusion?

if it turns out that connecting the oddball ZX2 sensor is not possible with available ports, would it be possible for someone to drill and tap the blank area next to bottom, front port?
