It doesn't hurt to run it off the oil cooler/filter port, but depending on what the pressure regulator and filter bypass valves are doing you may see the gauge doing something odd. If the sender/tap is in the block you are seeing exactly what the engine is seeing. If your gauge doesn't show anything odd you don't have to worry about it if you don't want to.
