    Hey guys I'm new to the whole honda scene and am trying to hook up an oil pressure gauge. I've looked all over the net to find out where to hook the pressure tubing into but can't find anything. If anyone has maybe a step by step w/ pics or at least a pic of where to hook it into on a D16y8 motor. I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

    some guys will put a t-fitting off of the oil pressure sending unit, located on the back of the block under the intake manifold, others will use a t-fitting off the oil sensor on the vtec solenoid
