    Okay I have my B16 but I need to know where the Water Temp Sending Unit and Oil Pressure Sending Units are so I can hook up my aftermarket oil psi and water temp gauges. Any help would be great and pics would be outstanding.

    I have a b16a SiR II motor, if you have the same engine as I do, you may no see the oil pressure switch, and it may need to be dyed and taped. The water temp, just follow the rad hose at the bottom of your rad to the block, that housing has your therma in it.

    Yeah I am about to go pick up my gauges and needed to know. I really don't want to tap a hole into the block for oil pressure readings ya know. Paid too much for the motor.
