Re: [DML] Oil pressure sender - always says 80 psi

I don't recall the particulars, but when we put headers on my son's 
BMW, IIRC we were able to remote-mount the oil pressure sender away 
from the engine with an adapter block and a short line. You might be 
able to move the sender to a more friendly location, it does not have 
to be right on the engine. It's pretty standard threads.

That would also solve your filter fit problems. 

But it won't be concours......
