If you have rhino ramps you will need them to reach the oil pressure sending unit located high on the back of the engine block. It will also require a special deep socket that you can find in the "help" section of Pepboys. Some people have installed a tee fitting to run both std and mechanical oil pressure sending units at the same time. Hope this helps.

On the GT there is a foil insulator around the sending unit, and you will see a wire attached to an electrical connector coming out the end. The picture that was posted makes it look easy, but remember you have to go in from underneath the car, and reach up thru frame members etc. to get at it.

I found a great product for adding oil pressure, temp sensors. without messing with all the existing hookups for your after market gauges.

Actually, you can't get more discriptive than that pic. It's just an exact drawing of the engine. You can feel it on the right side rear of the block, but it is much easier to get to from underneath with that special socket. On a lift it's a piece of cake.
