    I can't say if this is 100% right as I am only going off info I know about from earlier Vauxhall engines. The oil pump usually has two connections - one for the turbo feed (unused on NA cars) and one for the pressure switch. On the C20LET the gauge works off a sensor that replaces the pressure switch and has a dual output (normal switch and pressure). I assume it would be a case of getting a C20LET or C20XE sensor and a suitable gauge. Alternatively, you could get an adaptor to go between the oil pump and the turbo feed - Demon Tweeks sell them. This way you could use an aftermarket sensor. Saying that, the tapping size Vauxhall use is unusual, so you may have to shop around for a suitable adaptor.
