Is the billet oil filter cap accurate for oil temp, or is it used for oil pressure? It seems that the oil would be cooler in the filter and give an inaccurate reading of temp. Please help clear this up, thanks!

Well it's done. Seems accurate, sat about 185ish. Now I just need to get my coolant gauge finished.

It may be a couple degree's off from the oil pressure test port, buts its close enough for horseshoes and hand grenades.

Not too bad, the hole is very easy to get to from under the truck. Just have to drain the coolant...

You could find a splinter of some sort..I would put the pressure gauge in the pressure test port and take your oil temp from the cap. My water temp is right where the coolant runs into the oil cooler.I don't have a pic handy but I know its posted around here somewhere.

Here is a pic of the test port installation.

well you could put the oil pressure gauge in the oil pressure test port, its a tight fit to get to and you have to drill out and tap the fitting, you can see it here:
