Is this electrical or mechanical? I have a guage that I need to hook-up also, however I need a sender (electric) to make it happen.

What type of oil are you using, and what's the figure when at hot idle?

I use an electical oil pressure because I don't want oil inside of car, boost is mechanical. 5w-30 Mobile one, when it warmed up it dropped to 25-30psi, which is a little better. When you go to install yours, take out airbox, and look for 2 plugs under the cams, they are a odd size, about 3/16", I got a screw extractor which had a square drive that was the perfect size, and used that to remove plug.
