HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Oil Pressure Sending Unit

Post  Bluemach1 on Sat Apr 10, 2010 2:27 pm

I bought VDO oil pressure sending unit 360-009 as recommended by the manual. I am now trying to figure out where this is supposed to mount. Is it intended to go where the oil pressure switch is located on the LS (at the back of the engine, behind the intake manifold)? If it is, it doesnt look like there is enough room there for it.

The engine I am working with is a 2000 LS from a trans am.


Thanks,

Bluemach1

It goes where the stock unit does, but you'll need an extension/adapter to put it there. Don't remember the specs off the top of my head, someone else ought to be able to clue you in...

Does that pop it up high enough to clear the intake manifold?

Does anyone know a source to get the fittings to mate the VDO oil pressure sender to the LS1 block stock location?

For the stock location, I went to Napa and bought a 45 degree brass adaptor that has the same female and male thread sizes as the oil sender and the hole on the back of the manifold. It fits perfectly there. A 90 degree would have been too much and the straight did not have enough room for the base of the sender.

Any place that haas hydraulics or pipe hoses and connectors should have it; Auto parts stores, machine shops, home depot, lowes, etc. just take the sender in with you./

Although I am not going to re-use the 944 oil sender, I did mic it out for future reference.

944 OP sender = M18 x 1.5 male thread w/ crush washer
LS, Truck OP sender = M16 x 1.5 Male thread w/washer

I was going to make a 1-off adapter (M16 x 1.5 male to M18 x 1.5 female) but it would not fit under the LS intake with the straight adapter.

There is another solution if someone can find an adapter 1/8 NPT female to M18 x 1.5 Female

Thanks for the info guys. I did try a few parts stores but all the fittings they had were NPT (national pipe thread) threads that didnt fit the LS1 block. I will try a few other places tomorrow. Thanks again.

I used a stock 944 sender, so my gauge and idiot light would work. I tapped the remote oil housing for it. My LS1 has the stock oil sender wired into the LS1 harness, so the ECM gets the right signal.

There are remote oil kits that have ports tapped for senders.

is that the stock pressure sensor?

I just bought a brand new stock unit, and the M18x1.5 thread is a pain its so big, trying to figure out where I can place it, tapping the oil filter was my first idea, also screwing it to one of the two, 1/2 npt ports Im not using, but its so big it will interfere with the an fitting next to it

When ordering the sender does it matter if its says 90degree or full sweep gauge? I only see that described on Summits website the others list the sender.

Yes, that is the stock presssure sensor. As for full sweep and 90 degree gauge sensors, I'm not sure. But I have five full sweep gauges, I'll go grab a part number, if anyone has a 90 degree unit, maybe they can post it. I really doubt they are different if they are electrical sensors. BTW, I have AutoMeter European Spec full sweep gauges, they match the 944 dash very nicely.

Thanks, I was holding off getting the water temp and oil pressure sensors until I could verify the 90degree sensors would work. VDO has 1/8NPT sensors in the appropriate range for our factory gauges that are 90degree sweep, per Summit. With 1/8NPT threads it is easy to find adapters to fit the head and remote oil mounts.

If you guys are having a hard time finding a place to mount the oil psi sensor, you can do what they did in british cars and just remote mount them. Just get a length of rigind line or AN hose, fittings and then thread the sensor into the rigid line or AN hose.

This is done in alot of race cars to get the sensor away from vibration and heat as well as to gain clearance.

Heres a product made just for this reason...

The part number I have for the sensor is AutoMeter 4590-0023-12. It is a 0-100PSI sensor, with 3 wire plug. Remote hose is a good idea, I need to do something for the oil temp as well. I was thinking the oil pan maybe for the temp sensor.

Oil Pressure Sending Unit

Post  WillSoz on Mon Feb 28, 2011 5:37 pm

I just bought this fitting the other night for this. Still waiting for it to come in and test it out. Was a bit pricey at just over $30 including shipping, but for a stock look... maybe worth it. It looks like you may be able to get it just high enough to clear the camshaft sensor with the reducer in place.

Was the only place I found so far to offer a M16 male to M18 female straight thread adapter.

Where's the stock oil temp sensor again? I am trying to find it on my LM4 and don't see it.

Stock oil pressure sender is behind the intake at the top of the block. I don't think there is an stock oil temperature sender.

Oil Pressure sensor

Post  fliermike45 on Mon Feb 28, 2011 8:17 pm

The oil pressure sensor on my engine is at the rear of the intake manifold.
I purchased the VDO sensor specified by Sloan and have researched an adaptor.

Today I talked to Tony at Street Performance (479) 394 5711.
He recommended a 16mm male/female adaptor with a 1/8" tapping for the sensor.
This will allow me to keep the factory computer connector and also use the VDO sensor.

I also purchased a 3/8" to 12 mm adaptor for the water temp sensor.

Each adaptor approx $19.00 each.

They are about $10 each. I quit using S&P after they screwed me and one of my customers on a set of headers!

Hey admin, does that CTS allow the use of the factory sending unit? Or do you use one of the after-market sending units?
