BST and NPT are close enough to interchange below 3/4.

I would agree with you if you could use teflon tape in the case that it doesn't seal, but you really can't. Unless you plan to buy an external ground OPS, in which case you can just buy an NPT one and not have to worry about this **** (or BSP in your case I guess).

Well yeah, I bet that's what most of the DIY setups here are using, they just wrap teflon tape on it and call it good.

But I wanna do it right this time around.

Found a similar part in the UK, $25 w/shipping from the UK Oil pipe lines



Still open to options if anyone finds one.

Sounds like you have made the decision about where to get the turbo oil feed. One decision down. Now I hope we some Heavy Pig progress. For the fun of it, I will suggest how you can feed from the block, and not Tee. Run the line directly from the block port, but move the sensor to the head port. Not the same pressure, but that position has it's pros. If the block loses pressure, you will see it at the head. (this approach assumes enough space between the back of the head and the firewall).

Yeah man. I went back and forth a billion times, and actually agree with you and Dann that its likely not critical at all, but it came down to: same price for the different lengths of line, and likely less risk, because lets face it: your test DID show a significant drop in oil pressure to the head. Just don't feel like experimenting at this point, wanna get my car done and just enjoy it and not second guess anything.

I almost picked up the fitting Joe linked to, but FWIW, and not entirely on topic...

I merely needed a spacer to move the stock pressure sender far enough away from the block that I could get my knock sensor up in the factory position. I picked this up off of fleabay for $10 shipped. Ended up giving me about 1/2" extra clearance.

I'm resurrecting this thread because **** you, that's why.

I found this today buried in the BATINC catalog:



Someone tell me that JIS and BSPT are interchangeable in this application and I'll buy one of these to check it out.

Depends on which JIS we're talking about.

True, the JIS tapered thread is BSPT. The JIS flare is a 60 flare. By our stuff I mean I looked in my work's piping standards and it says JIS tapered pipe thread and BSPT are identical. Google also agrees.

The threads themselves are identical, yes.

I bought one of those BAT adapters. All of the threads had to be re-cut on mine - each of them would only go about a turn and a half before tightening.

So I bought a 1/8 BSP tap, and a die, re-cut them, mocked it all up and then decided I didn't like how kludgy it was and decided not to run it anyway. Sigh.
