calling out the Master SPIer

Mr. WaterBoy,
This winter while its cold outside here in Good Old Minnesota I will be doing so work on my car in the good old heated Garage. I plan on ordering my SCT, getting a mustang MAF, installing larger injectors(39# or 42#) and installing my gauges.

Basicly what I want to do is get the tuning side down while the car is stock so that when I bolt up the tubo I dont have any major catastrophic failures.

I plan on installing and running oil temp gauge, oil pressure gauge, wide band A/F(O2) Sensor, Volt Meter, Boost Gauge, Fuel Pressure gauge.... (I think thats it)

but I've been trying to do some reading and ask around but my qestion is do u know of a stock location on the SPI block that has an existing Oil presure gauge bung like the Zetec block has on the drivers side of the engine bay?

I've also read there are oil filter adapter plates that allow you to put one of those on an run the oil temp and oil pressure sensors from that.

Any help would be great,
Thanks,
Josh

Oh an what gauges are you running with your current setup? I know the damn wide band sensor is frikken expensive but I was wondering if you were going to run one?

I am in NO WAY the master. Wellllll, I am good at hooking worms. My friends call me the "Master Baiter" (Insert collective groan here)

I do intend on going wideband at some point, but not right now.

For simplicity I used the existing oil hole that the OEM sensor is hooked into. I used a nipple, a tee, and then hooked up my gauge and oil feed line for the turbo.

For gauges as of now I have an A/F ratio, oil pressure, and boost gauge. In the immediate future I want to run a tranny temp and fuel pressure gauge. If you have a 2k2 and up I believe there is a Schrader valve on the rail you can use for your gauge.

well I drive a 2k Sedan as well. So where is the stock OEM sensor bung located? Did you leave the stock oil sensor out then? did u throw a CEL by leaving it out if u did leave it out.

Are you just running a narrow band A/F then? Where did u hook up the boost gauge at?

Thanks for the help,
Josh

Stock sensor bung is to the left of the oill filter. It is 1/4" FIPT (female iron pipe thread). Then you take a short brass nipple (called a close nipple as it is all threads), thread on a tee, then another close nipple, then another tee. Then screw in your oil line to the turbo, pressure gauge, and pressure sensor. I can send you a pic if you want. I have an oil cooler on too, so I can send you pics of that. Ford OEM part that is a bolt-on and works great!
