There are adapters that go inbetween your oil filter and the block with connections for the oil sender unit. The oil temp is done the say way, most of the adapters have multiple connections. If you want water temp there are temp sending units that install in your radiator hose. These are two of the more simple ways to do it.

This is one of the GReddy oil block adapters:


You can find them on line.

Here's a site with a list of adapters for different gauges:

Yeah, try to run the same adapter as the company you are using for your gauges. The GReddy adapter uses a different thread pitch than say, AC Autotechnica.
