Oil pressure you can run a T piece off the oem oil pressure sensor, allowing you to wire in your gauge whilst keeping the oem oil light. OR if you plan to run even more gauges? Then an oil sandwich plate. I've got a T piece spare here

Thanks for that mate. Could you find me a drawing or diagram please im not quite sure when it comes to electrical bits. Or if you could simply draw a diagram for me that would be great.

I'll see if I can find one mate, or in fact have a check on youtube! there's quite a few videos on there. The main gist of it is that it needs power, earth and the sensor wire. I ran my sensor wire off a T piece where the oem oil pressure switch is located. Ran my power wire off the fuse box or cigarette lighter, and then I attached the black ground wire to a random nut/bolt on the chassis somewhere.

1 of the T-piece things. Screws into the oem oil pressure switch, then you attach your gauge wire off the 1 hole, then the oem one into the 2nd hole. Or there's oil sandwich plates, which I'm sure you've probably seen before
