    Assume he is using the same as me, they are m10 x 1.0.

      Same question then, especially given that the pressure ports on the BP will be 1/8 NPT.

        Drill and tap or just remote mount

          Given that oil and fuel pressure/temp will both be taken off AN adapter fittings that really isnt an option.

              Ah nice, that solves it. I was only finding the reverse. i.e.: https://outlawspeed.com.au/shop/au2265

                Goleby's sell the Bosch sensor with a range of adaptors to suit, if that helps:

                  Yep, M10x1.0

                  Alternatively, M10 actually fits remarkably closely to 1/8" BSP - other than it's not a tapered thread. You can run the M10x1.0 sensors, with a bit of thread sealant, in that fitting without issue.

                    So, these Bosch sensors. How are they for vibration resistance?

                    Planning on one for oil pressure/temp, but with remote mounting it relies on capillary conduction for temperature, rather than full flow. But to get it in flow it will need to be block mounted...

                        They wont work for temp remotely.

                          Yeah, thats what i thought, hence asking about how they do for vibration.

                            For the temp sensor you can just use the old faithful Bosch 0 280 130 026 which is the coolant temp sensor used in just about everything. They are 12x1.5 so you'll need to tap your sump or weld on a bung. They are happy to live on thermostat housings so heat and vibration are not really an issue. I like to get the 90 boots for the plugs so that you can keep the wire well supported to prevent vibration fatigue, Steve at EFI Hardware has these.
                            The Bosch 0 261 545 xxx range of sensors are OEM diesel direct injection jobs so I assume they are reasonably well tested for vibration and so forth, but I have my oil pressure remote mounted because a failure is going to be fucking ugly.
                            If anyone is planning to use the Bosch 10x1mm sensors for brake pressure - FYI it's hard to find a good fitting that has sufficient thread depth for the sensor, all the aftermarket brake adaptor things don't give enough thread engagement.

                              None of the TI or Honeywell sensors are reliable unless you spend $100s mounting them remotely which you should not have to do. May as well buy china copies.
                              OE stuff like the pressure/temp sensors is more likely to continue working than the "MotorSport" sensors that are actually shit designed to be screwed on the side of manufacturing equipment in a pineapple cannery.

                              Buyer beware.
                              use Teflon paste on the 1/8 sensors not locktight or superglue and they come out easy as pie..
                              ive never had a Honeywell sensor fail, I have sensor on my car that are 12 years old and still going strong, ive only ever had 1 TI fail as well..

                              and apparently i dont know shit...

                                Ive already ordered the pressure and temp sensor, so i reckon ill just run it inline on the turbo oil feed with an AN fitting and soft mount it to the firewall behind the head.
