    you can buy guages and they have a variety of adapters to make it work. the pressure guage will work from the block and the oil temp will come from the pan.

    what is the adaptor that I would need if I run it from the oil pan drain plug. Will it report an acurate reading? Or should I find an oil filter sandwich adaptor, like for an oil cooler but has an additional fitting for the temp guage? If so where to find this adaptor that has all tree ports?
