Have a suitably sized bung welded into your oem sump, whilst the sump is off have some baffle plates welded in alsoi use a magnetic plug and lets say i don't want to drill my sump for the oil temp sensor is there any other way to fit it ?
My products look a lot better than that cheapo...get what you pay forThis will fit, cheaper to.
Remote Oil Pressure T Piece Kit - 1/8BSPT Jap Fitment on eBay (end time 26-Dec-10 20:18:19 GMT)
And id watch when putting the oil temp sensor in the sump bolt hole, it will hang down.... sumin you dont really want to be getting caught...
surely the effect of the plate would be close to negligable? will you remove the OE heat exchanger too?Next oil change before the car goes back on the road i'm looking to redo where my gauges take feeds from as i would like to remove the sandwich plate to maximise oil flow and remove the slight restriction the plate causes
I like the sound of this too.Im going to do a kit in the new year with the hose and associated fitting as its something I get asked about often, will probably be around Â£30-35 for the kit
No ,dont put the temp. sensor there , Its the ultimate best place for pressure reading. You want the temp. sensor reading from the sump.can i use the oem oil pressure hole position for measuring oil themp from there instead of oil pressure ?
Standard thread size on the B-series is 1/8 BSPT for the standard oil pressure switch.
it's 1/8 bspt or 1/8 npt ???Ill order in some T-pieces The kit will consist of ;
-1/8npt adapter to screw into the block
-Hose to screw onto adapter and into T-piece
-Brass T-piece with 1/8npt outlets for the pressure switch and gauge sensor. I could possibly have distribution blocks with more outlets mate instead of the t-piece, for people who want an oil feed for a turbo perhaps.
Stephen, personally I would like my pressure switch as close to the pump as possible for a consistent and fairly accurate reading, the head is furthest away from the pump, and also, would register a pressure drop when vtec activates.
i'm pretty sure the port you have shown does not get a good oil flow unless in vtec as it connects directly to the vtec solenoid and nothing else.mate i can't drill a hole on my sump right now maybe later i'll give it a try among with baffled plates as you said
i know it wont be 100% accurate but i have the gauge and i want to fit it!!
anyone had used this port for measuring oil temp ?
or should i use the oil pressure port ?
Probably not the right part of the forum for this question.Hay people names Reggy I'm won't to no IV got a b18c that i swap out off a DC2 into a DB8 iv have spark and gas pressure and air flow cranking sounds like it wonts to kick over but won't start any help would be great thanks
