Use a sandwich plate between the oil filter.

I would (and did on my own car) use a standard 1/8 npt oil capillary line in the OEM oil pressure sensor hole (back of the block) even though its 1/8 bsp. Then place your pressure sensor up at the bulkhead on a rubber mount to isolate it from vibration. Do not attach the pressure sensor directly to the block as it may snap off. viewtopic.php?p=164776#p164776

The OEM oil pressure sensor is next to useless anyway.
