I installed a 911 oil temp and pressure gauge this Winter.
I didnt want to hack up my engine tins to mount the sensor in the stock location so
I made bracket and mounted it on the fan housing where the stock coil sits and connected it to the oil pressure port with a piece of steel braided hose with the correct end fittings. It works well and doesnt leak but I've noticed that in long sweeping left hand turns I loose oil pressure, it never goes to zero but once or twice the light flickered on and then immediatly turned off again.

Do you think this could be a sensor location thing or perhaps an issue with my tuna can installation?
