The CD should show location of the oil pressure switch(es).

I've used the VDO dual sender on many cars - replaces the pressure switch with a unit that has both a switch and a sender for the gauge.

Just off the head under the cams on the passenger side, there is a m8 plug threaded into the head, that is a source that i use for my turbo feed and oil pressure sensor, i have a turbocharged 2.5l 5 cylinder and that is the easiest and most reliable point for oil pressure and feed
