You can use an inline splicer or simply cut into the wires and tape the gauge's power wire to a wire that runs to the existing gauges. If your car uses a factory oil pressure gauge, use that fitting to install the new oil line. Determine where you are going to mount the gauge in the A-pillar.

Start the engine to ensure the oil gauge is correctly reading the engine's oil pressure. Route the connection to an unpainted ground connection.

You can use a gauge pod that mounts somewhere like the A-pillar or dash, or you can custom mount it anywhere you choose. In order to avoid damage to the gauge or cause it to malfunction, take note not to connect it to a dimmer. Make certain that all wiring connections are properly detached before pulling the gauge out of the car.

Fasten a round eyelet to the end of the ground wire and bolt it to a metal surface that does not have any paint on it. Thread the fitting into the block.

To wire an oil pressure gauge, make sure to get a copy of the wiring diagram for the specific brand and model of the device. Insert a rubber grommet in the hole to protect the oil line. This can be done indirectly through the fuse panel of the vehicle or directly to the battery.

If your car has an oil pressure warning light, this will also be installed in the block, but it will likely be only a wire that runs to a sensor. Slide the end of the clear oil line into the fitting on the back of the oil pressure gauge, tightening the fitting onto the line with an open-ended wrench. Connect the white wire on the sensor to the white wire on the gauge. The gauge should be found near the oil filter and the engine.

Just make sure you can see it from the driver's seat. Apply Teflon tape to any metal parts that thread together.
