Default Electric guages, how to?

I just recently bought electric oil pressure and water temperature guages, where is the best spot to put the sender unit on the block?

There should be a pulgged hole for coolant and one for oil right under your distributor. You have to use a hex key to get these plugs out and then you can probably just thread the senders right into the block .

When I installed mine it was on a D16Z6, so I can't say for sure on your B16. Sorry .

For the oil pressure, youremove the oil pressure sensor above the oil filter. You will need a BSTP/NPT 1/8" adapter. You will also need a small braided steel hose. You do not want to thread the sender directly into the block because it issupposed to be insulated from vibration. Tee the sender with the OEM oil pressure sensor.
