Oil take off options for 2ZZ...
Wes has a very good solution there; a "pigtail" of braided hose makes it an easy proposition for the install. We have not seen any fitting or sensor failures from vibration on these engines, however I have heard of one or two. Never a bad idea to isolate a pressure sensor when it is easy.
Lots of people do not realize that these Japanese engines feature pipe threads that have their origins from the British Standard Pipe, thus the BSP designation. Our domestic National Pipe Thread "NPT" is slightly larger and has a different thread count so they are just not interchangeable.
Adapters are easy to find online, however are increasingly difficult to source from local automotive and fitting supply houses.
Hope this helps!
