Is it worth the hassle to tap the factor sender? Would you recommend it to someone who has only tapped aluminum a few times?

soviet911 So whats the lowest accpetable PSI? if i remeber corectly low pressure light goes off at 6 psi or so, and I read that most saab mechanis will drop the engine the moment it hits 10 psi? Any links that would describe that or any info on that?

soviet911 I'm Pretty sure the back light is on separte power connection so you can attach a dimmer to it some how. At least I seen some where in a guide a person do that.

But on other note, whats the presure specifications for saab engine (Platanof said he reads 20psi at idle and 40psi a 2000 rpm) is there info on what PSI oil presure you suppose to get and at what RPM? would make it nice to diagnose early low pressure issues...

soviet911 Cool thanks, Another question, is the glow shift gages any good? Thats the gages they guy used in the tutrial and from what I read they are good budget gages? (I want a boost gage and oil pressure gage to keep track of what my car is doing)

Oil Gauge presure monitor.

Hi, I was woundering which oil presure reading method would be better to do from the two bellow?

Filter Sandwich
http://photo.platonoff.com/Auto/2009...ressure_Gauge/

or

in block sensor.
https://saablink.net/forum/showthread.php?t=18367

The filter sandwich looks simple to do, but block sensor worries me that I will be removing the stock sensor, wich I would rather not do, and I dont want to tap. What you guys think?
