Default Oil pressure sensor input for MSPNP2

Hi,
I have a turbo 1.6 racecar running MSPNP2.
Is it possible to connect an aftermarket oil pressure sensor to the MSPNP2? I'm not a good enough driver to keep an eye on the factory oil pressure guage through the corners, so logged data would be somewhat handy to see if pressure dropped significantly during a race.
If anyone has done this, I'd love to know how you did it and what sensor you used.
I have a remote oil filter adapter with threaded sensor ports available.
Thanks.

You’d want to use a spare analog input, which are 0-5v. Any sensor that outputs a 0-5v signal will do, anywhere from a $15 from eBay to a $160 AIM sensor. Transducer style ones are really small, but need to be remote mounted, they can’t survive the vibrations of being mounted directly to a hard surface like a block. Diagram style like the OE 90-94 sensor are big and bulky but very robust.

Once you wire the 0-5v input to the MS, I’m a little unsure how to properly display it as usable data, since all my experience comes from ms3s. I’m not sure if newer ms2 firmware includes any generic sensor programming

Thanks. I saw this post but I'm unsure if it will work on an MSPNP2. Probably worth a shot.

I have not played with a MS2 in a long time, but I would assume it will have very similar options for these.
