Purchased these from ebay last week and came today, looking at what there is it appears that the oil temp and oil pressure go directly into the block via removing core plugs if there is any? or do i now need one of those sandwich plates off ebay for £20 notes to make life easier? lol also stated in the ad that the boost sender was hardwired and not removed from the owner car, anyone got one or know were i can get one or bypass it? and last but least, wiring!!! were do they feed from? the harness for the clock as i've got nothing on paper on how to wire them in, could be a job for andy on thursday when i drop the car off for a service lol!

I Have one of these fitted to mine

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Sure AS performance sell them aswell, Easy enough to fit with the intercooler off, the one you already have i have fitted below the alternator, which is relitavly easy to remove also

wired mine to the cigarette lighter as mine annoyingly beep when listening to the radio with the key in th radio position


looking closer at the picture you may already have on, so may just need the blank removed from the block and screwed in, all depends on the size of the threads

Alright you already have the remote line to plumb straight into the block for your oil pressure looking at your photos Very Happy

You need to remove your oe oil pressure sensor and replace with your remote one extend the wiring for the oe one and put into the remote line so that your oil warning light on dash goes off Wink

Then you oil remove the blanking plug for your oil temp and put sensor in instead Very Happy

You will need an electronic sensor for your boost gauge Very Happy

There a quite a few links with pictures to show all the locations on some of the sites if you look lol!

It's not that long a job and not that hard if you have paitience and a little know how .

If not and you are down this way i can point you in right direction or fit em for a small fee Suspect lol! lol! lol!

Av found it m8 full install guide on there with a defi gauge setup but I'm short of the boost sender, £23 off eBay so it's all good, few scotch locks tapping into the clock harness and it's good to go pretty straight forward install, sweet!

I have mine in straight into the block. Pressure from front cylinder and temp from rear. Don't know wich numbers they are. They are more accurate that way.

Agree. My first Scoob (UK turbo) had a sarni plate and it leaked over time. Andy K fitted the gauges to my type R and plumbed directly into the block.
