    Help fitting gauges needed

    I'm fitting a 3 gauge pod in the DIN slot which currently houses a 4 cd storage unit.

    One is boost, other is Volts which are easy enough to fit - but the 3rd is Oil temp. Does anyone know where and how to fit this?

    Help appreciated..

    Lol! in the same boat as you! but i got 2 volt and 1 temp!

    The max power staff car astra (red hatchback) had an oil temp guage fitted, but it never said how it was done. will try n get in contact with him/them to see how it was done :s .....thats even if they did it!

    You can either remove the sump and drill & tap the sensor in there, or perhaps get an adaptor and plumb it in near the oil pressure sensor.

    Can you not get a temp sensor that replaces the drain plug?

    something like on this page http://www.greddy.com/prod_gauge_accessories.htm

    hmm thanks guys - not keen on removing the sump - but will see what the gauge comes with - what about the oil filter - do you think that I could modify one to thread in a sensor?
