I was looking at those too, but decided I would make my own so bought a billet of alloy big enough to make two and 1/2"bsp tap and drill to suitable to drill the hole to be threaded, and a couple of 1/2"bsp fittings all for about 55.

Still a waste of money though as everything clears the oil filter housing anyway

I was tempted to buy one when I first saw it, then saw the price!

Now looks like I’m going to make one!

Is a pressure switch needed for the each or can I happily swop over to capillary gauge and not bother with the switch?

Depends if you think you think a little itsy bitsy needle in your peripheral vision is going to be as effective as a big RED light in plain sight to get you to switch your engine off before it gets destroyed as you've lost oil pressure.

The problem is by the time the light comes on the chances are there will be damage already done. Personally I prefer a gauge AND a light using a t-piece as you have the potential of spotting dropping oil pressure and the light then acts as a failsafe if you miss it.

Bloody predictive text.....that meant to say is it needed for the ecu. I plan on using capillary line anyway, just not sure if the ecu has some sort of tie up with oil pressure?
