So I've half way installed an oil pressure gauge in my 87 sprint, it's up to the point of hooking up the nylon line, there is a oil line above the oil filter.. not sure what it is for, is the turbo oil and water cooled? Well my thoughts are to try and track down where it goes and put tee in it. There is also another plug on the timing cover next to this, not sure what the best option is here, any recommendations or experiences greatly appreciated! I also have an air fuel gauge, water temp and boost gauge in the mail. Boost I can figure out, air fuel should work with my o2, and my water temp to my temp sender.

Not sure about the 87. But my 91 turbo has the turbo oil pressure line on the side of the oil pump. It as long as they have pressure either should work. Just keep in mind it will be metric and most oil pressure kits don't come with metric fittings.
