Well, I liked the T idea for the pressure sensor and I was going to drill and tap at that blank spot on the top for the temperature sensor. I am currently using a sandwich plate adapter... Wanting to get rid of it...

That adapter is what I have. You can put the OE bstp oil pressure light sender on one port and a npt sender on the other. Fits good, easy to install.

Two ports for what? I though the temp sender was going in the drilled and tapped hole?

So, this adapter connects to the OE turbo oil feed port? The OEM pressure sensor is bigger in size, so I assume it stay untouched?

No it goes where the OE sender is, the npt sender will go in the middle and the OE sender will go on the end.

OE sender is 1/8" x 28 BSTP, my electric sender is 1/8" x 27 npt.

Seems legit. How much did you pay for the adapter? I see some for about $20, some for less.

I got it in April. I don't see it failing like a brass pipe thread.

I was doing an install on a friends BK2 2.0. He already had the OEM oil pressure sender in the hole there, I removed it because we were doing a guage swap to AEM. Is it used for anything else besides the guage?
Anyways when I tried to thread the AEM oil pressure sender it did not want to thread in at all. Are they different sizes?
I know on my BK1 2.0 I didn't have this issue.

Gen Coupe do not have NPT threads on the sender it is 1/8" BSTP. You can force it in like you did on the BK1 but you are cross threading the aluminum when you do. Better to get a steel BSTP x NPT x BSTP if you want to also use the OE sender. Don't get brass for the adapter. I've broke two before going to the steel.

This makes sense now. Well now I need to fix my buddies mounted sensor. Probably best if I leave it as is. I also found a remote mount line to help make it install in a easier location: https://www.amsperformance.com/cart/...Unit-Line.html

But the right was would be to get an adapter for the BSTP to NPT. Got it.

I had the filter adapter off again to repair the turbo feed line as it was leaking again. Put a flared fitting in instead of the banjo bolt end.
