Default Oil cooler sandwich plate with NPT

Does anyone know if they make an oil cooler sandwich plate that has NPT fittings for sensors etc...

Did the following search with no luck: https://www.miataturbo.net/search.php?searchid=2482358

Thanks peeps

TVC-50 or TVC-60.

Ebay has cheaper alternatives; success rates vary with them. Note the full bypass TVC-60 is only good for sensors. Edit: I have been running the TVC-60 for 4 years with my oil temp/pressure sensors with no leaks or other issues.

Heya Fady. I went with

Sandwich Plate - Mocal Sandwich Plate- 20mm Thread

It installed fine. I have a small oil leak, but I think that is because I didn't tighten up the hose fitting onto the plate quite enough. Still have to get under there and check it out.

FYI, the Mocal adapter fittings are 1/2" BSPP (British Pipe Parallel) and they should seal with Dowty seals, not on a taper. Leaks are pretty common if you use the wrong fittings there.

Yep, I actually have these on there - Mocal 1/2 BSP x -10 fitting

I think the leak is because of the location. Hard to get a wrench in there to put a lot of torque, so probably just limp wristing it.

Yep Fady, definitely will be at INDE. If the car runs right, maybe you can take it out for a spin. Thought we had more time at that P1 track last time.

let me know if you need a hand getting it running right. Just dropped mine off at the body shop yesterday. Wish me luck.

It is already gone, sending it out to Hustler so he can have something to worry about on his NA car now.
