Oil pressure, trans temp and coolant temp tap ins

Where is everyone tapping in for pillar pod gauges for those 3 things?

For oil pressure you can T off the factory pressure sensor located at the front of the block, passenger side. For trans temp, you can drill and tap the oil pan, but i recently found another option which is a block that you put inline with the transmission line going to the cooler. It has a provision where you can install a sensor (autometer part number 2287). There are cheaper knock offs on Ebay and Amazon.
As for coolant, i guess you can split the radiator's upper hose and add ine of these http://https://www.maperformance.com/products/prosport-performance-water-temp-sender-radiator-hose-adapter

Thank you sir. Most of that I figured from when I had my cummins but I bought an oil pressure gauge yesterday and it came with about 4' of hose. I'm thinking "what the hell am I supposed to do with that?"....lol

Oil pressure I just pulled the plug above the sending unit. (used a reducer to get it to the size I needed.) Water temp. pulled a plug on the pass. lower side of the block and taped in there. Don't have a tranny temp gauge. There is a test port on the tranny some use to tap into. But I would go with one of the 2 option's posted for a better set-up.
