Back from the dead again because I am buying the PRL adapter for my 1.8 swap and the link in Joe's post is dead. Here's an updated one:

1 8 034 BSPT Oil Pressure Sensor Tee to NPT Adapter Turbo Supply Feed Line Gauge T | eBay

30 shipped

I literally just received this yesterday and threaded it in. It's stout. I'll take a picture but I suppose we all know what it looks like by now installed.

Right now the aftermarket sender is clocked downward, I'm wondering if this will interfere with the starter, or if I need to rotate it tenderly to the 9 o'clock position

I'm not sure I'd want to use that T for the coolant line. It'll probably have an air bubble in it forever.

Coolant? Oops, I'm using it to tee the oil senders.

My old coolant source was a banjo bolt/-AN6 to the back of the head (Up for sale). New one is a side port on the block.

You should sell me this as well, to go with the oil feed.

oh my gahd. If I get around to assembling the head onto the block, I'll try to figure out real quick what I'm keeping and what I'm selling. I might be harvesting some of the previous lines but I can send you the banjo, bolt and and barb I used for free.99

As to what braided lines I keep, you might have to extend or adapt, but at least the port is then available (and tucked neatly behind the block). You have put it in place before any coolant reroute housing though, it JUST fits.
