You might be able to tap into the oil pressure sending unit wire, but I don't know if it will work with your gauge. You would probably need a sending unit for the Audi gauge in order for it to work. I would think the same would apply to the oil temp gauge.

Yeah, I know how it works.:lol: I just named it like Ford did in the service manual. Every time I have ever had to replace one, I have always been asked if it was for a gauge or idiot light, which was why I told racethisescort89 he would probably need a sending unit for the Audi gauge. Personally, I would toss the electric gauge and use a mechanical one.

It's the only was to get the real oil pressure. And it won't leak if you do it right. I've never had an issue on the cars I did that too. I would suggest racing lines, the ones that encased in braided steel over the plastic lines instead of the basic plastic lines supplied with most cheaper oil gauges.
