I just bought a ractive electronic oil pressure gauge and need to know if there any way to install the pressure sender without having a fitting on the oil filter?

I know that...but plenty of people have doen it with a short adapter and tee without a problem. I think most of the people having problems used too long of a tee
Lets not teach people what we know is the wrong way to do something. I've seen a lot of "normal" things on hondas that make me shake my head...

I bought one of the ports from tuner toys, some copper tube and a conduit clamp to remote mount my sending unit on the firewall. I haven't installed it yet, but I'll post up pics when I do.

You don't trust Lucas or what? It's been using in race car since a while. I know it's reduce oil consumption and smoke in my old civic.
