LargeCar, I'm with you on this one. I'm about to complete the plumbing on the same install but didn't like the idea of coming off of the filter cap even though I have one that I'm not going to use.
The test port does look buried down there and I was also looking at the the oil press sensor for a by pass feed and a pressure feed for my guage.
For the return, I bought an oil fill billet cap on ebay and a swivel fitting from amsoil.
Just a matter of getting the plumbing fittings the right size. I don't know if the pressure sensor fitting is imperial or metric. Perhaps someone knows the fitting size. I believe amsoil piping has 1/8" fittings.
I mounted my filter on the only space available on the pass. side beside the rad. I looked at mounting it where HHRECOVERY had his but didn't like my odds of the filter case getting hit from the axel or rocks.
I mounted my coolant filter on the frame rail below the power brake booster and out of the way of the front drive shaft. There's not a lot of options where to mount the aux filters on this truck.
