Install your sender into any other of the MANY galley plugs that are all over this engine. There are lots. There is no reason to remove a necessary stock part for this.
the LSJ block does not have all the plugs and oil ports like the 2.2s and the 2.4s doo and no I wont its an open close swtich whitch is either open when theres pressure or more than likely close when theres pressure it proboly just kicks closed at like 10PSI or some relaly low number and in that case I just either wire nut them together or keep them separte and I wont get a code from it, if the actually engine read pressure it would be based off of ohms more than likely, but its not is a closed open swtich thats activated by pressure when its drops to low it either opens or closes witch would through the oil pressure light,
and you dont need the swtich if your going to actually monitor it with a gauge
and really the guys on reisterstown road are kool? I figured they would bel ike every other dealership, Ill have to remember that
