You can put a T where the stock sensor is and run both the sending unit and the stock sensor off that T.

On my 93 LS it looks like a 1 wire sensor with a rubber boot over it. If you are standing in front of the car bending over the engine it is below the oil filter and a little to the right.

All B, D, F, and H series FWD Honda engines have the oil filter on the back of the block. So yes.

If you plan on boosting or doing a head swap then they are a good idea, otherwise your oil light will come on if the engine can't maintain the oil pressure it needs.

Then yeah, add one. It certainly can't hurt.
