Sorry I can't offer any advice, but here is what I did.
I just spent a bunch of time trying to figure out what would work best for me. I ended up replacing the stock oil pressure switch with an oil pressure sender and electrical gauge. I wanted to avoid a sandwich plate (less chance for leaks) or a t fittting off the existing oil pressure swith location (others claim that some have cracked and leaked). If you just unplug the switch the light will not light up on your dash. I used a Glowshift elite series gauge with the optional extra bright seperate LED warning light. The elite sending unit was about the same size as the stock switch. The gauge has a programable high and low warning setting. So I still get the low oil pressure warning and it is as bright as an aftermarket shift light. I figured I did not need an oil temperature since I can tell when the oil has warmed up when the pressure is in the mid 20's at idle. The only information I am missing is high oil temp indication but I can live with that. If I realy want to know I will have a bung welded to the oil pan.
