oil gauge sensor mounting location

Ok, so i bought an oil temp and pressure gauge with my car, and it really didn't give me clear instructions as to where to mount the sensor. I have just installed an oil filter relocation kit, so it would be really easy for me to stick the sensor where the oil filter used to be (the part where the oil comes out from the block). Would this work? And if Not, where would be a good place to stick it?
thanks

It should have a T-fitting with it. What you do is unscrew the oil pressure sending unit from the back of the block (1-pin sensor close to the oil filter), screw in the T-fitting, put the oil psi sending unit on the end of the T-fitting, and the sensor for the gauge on the part that sticks out of the T-fitting.

Yeah, that's INSANE to pay that much for a damn t-fitting...the gauge should have come with one though...
