Default oil pressure sender fitting setup question

in the pic below you can see the T in section B which i believe was installed to accommodate the oil supply line for the supercharger that was installed. the charger is gone now and i want to eliminate the T. Section A is straight off the block with male thread. section C has male thread as well.
so, to get this back to stock, do i get rid of section A and B and screw C into the block, or do i need a new straight piece for section B, or ?
i suppose i could remove the charger oil supply line and put a screw in the opening and be done with it, but i want it back to original if possible.

although, i may add an aftermarket pressure gauge down the road, so perhaps leaving the T in place is the best option? (i dont know how the aftermarket gauges hook up)

thanks in advance

If your going to get gauges down the road, I'd leave that T in there. Just plug it for now, no one will notice lol.

I believe stock there is a hex tube extension that your missing. Maybe 2 or 3" long to bring the sending unit away from the block.
