A quick follow up on this. Matt at MWR thinks this won't work well as he believes the temp sensor has to have some oil flow around it to work well. So i think i will put the temp right in the plate, run a line from the OEM pressure sensor tap in the block to a remote tee for the OEM and after-market pressure gauges, and revert to the OEM drain plug. Another round of parts from Summit Racing! Let's see if I can find a BSPT to 4AN adapter.
I am wondering now if having the OP sensor right in the plate, which must bounce around, accounts for my oil pressure gauge fluctuating so much. I'll soon have an answer.
