Default glowshift oil sandwich adapter

anybody have experience with this adapter, any leaks or info? trying to install oil pressure gauge and possibly oil temp, seems to be easiest way out since it has multiple fittings. pros and cons would be helpful also.

The adapter works very well as designed. The issue with 05-10 Mustangs is that once the adapter is installed the stock oil filter will not fit because the sway bar is in the way. Your choices will be to use a shorter filter or an oil filter relocation kit. I went with the relocation kit and I have an oil temp and oil pressure gauge attached. I like the adapter and I'm happy with the results. No leaks or issues with gauge readings.

I have one.

First install i didn't seat the o-ring properly and 5 L of oil came blowing out.

Use blue RTV gasketmaker and you are set.

And yes....installing oil filters is 3/10 for difficulty...removing is elventy billion times harder as the sway bar gets in the way

make sure you use lots of teflon tape on the sender ports / unused ports to make sure oil doesnt leak out
