use a brass T fitting and "T" off the stock sensor right at the top of the oil filter.

Works great. I got all my stuff at home depot. Dont forget to use liquid teflon on the threads.
I recommend against that. I lost an engine because the heat and vibrations caused the sensor to unscrew itself. I now just use blue LocTite.

uhh... I think it was an 1/8" NPT T-fitting that I used with the real teflon tape. Sensor comes right off of the oil filter. easy enough.

yep. i used blue loctite as well. no problems. as for the fittings, my guage came with them. it was an autometer guage. $50 at autozone.
