you need to T it in with the fatory one OR use the test port that is on the front of the motor just below the intake manifold.. u will see a plastic cap on it, i have no idea what the threads are. Thats part of the fun LOL You could also get a billet oil filter cap with a npt thread already tapped..

Or tap into the turbo oil suply. Since its one of the highest spots, I guess it makes since to check it there. My friends truck is done this way, and he seams to be happy with it.

I would never want ANYthing to ever get in line for resistance to a turbo oil supply...

Machanical oil pres gauges dont have probes or sensors. So I would think resistance would be minimal when dont correctly. But knowing ur turbo has adaquate oil is a good thing. And it being one of the highest points, it can be the first to loose oil under low pres. Wich is bad. Thats all I was getting at... But to each his own...
