We have just finished another project and I am looking for some feedback. We decided that we didn't like the usual form of piggybacking a block on top of the stock oil pedestal to get oil pressure and temp plugs for our aftermarket gauges. It required that you have longer studs and 2 more o-rings to use it. Besides that is just 2 more o-rings that could fail in the long run. So we made our own design



It uses a solid piece of billet aluminum and is CNC'd to our specs. It has 2 ports on the side of it for 1/8 NPT fittings and uses the stock studs and stock o-rings. It also has a larger trough at the bottom of the filter so that oil doesn't pour out of the pedestal when you remove it to change your filter. Any filter that fits on the stock filter pedestal fits ours just as it would OEM. There are no fitment issues that we have found yet, but we are still testing it in our cars to unsure it will perform as well as it looks



Anyway, feedback welcome good or bad (I have tough nerves )

looks great! I was going to buy the RB plate but I'll definitely take one of these if the price is right.

Looks good to me, would have been a tough choice between that and the RB one ( I already have the RB one )
