    Kinda a dumb question? Anyways I have a 99 5.7 vortec in my Land Cruiser and I am using auto meter gages ultra lite, Where do I hook up the oil line to get a psi reading? I have done TBI swaps before and there is a T fitting on the back of the motor on those but this one is different. Where do I tap in on the Vortec?

    My last truck was a 98 with the 5.7 Vortec and the sender was in the same location as the earlier TBI motors. You can also install a sender just above the oil filter on the Vortec's.
