sending unit wire goes to the wire attached to the sender on top of the tank.....or back of the cluster but you'll need a diagram to figure the correct wire out..as for oil pressure remove you should have sufficient line to route it away from headers, mine worked fine and remove old sender for elec gauge down by timing cover and place fitting for new one on it

i never had a problem with the plastic tubing, but if you want they do sell copper tubing kits for it. it should be right by them in autozone/advanced what ever.
