Thanks for the Reply Mr. Torque...
Do you know if/how to mount a temperature and pressure sender on an Automatic Tranny? And also do you know where i can get a engine oil pressure sender (M12x1.5) for less than $50 bucks?

as per oil pressure you can purchase an adaptor from BMPD.com and install a 2 prong sender, VDO makes nice ones, 5Bar should suffied.
