V6 Oil Pressure Sensor / Pressure / Temp Gauges

I have had my 156 V6 for a while, and after spending 3500 on a replacement engine, I really would like to know what my oil pressure and temperature are.
I found a sandwich plate (an adapter to go between the engine and oil filter to allow extra sensors to be plugged in) on eBay - great I thought, however I forgot just how little space there is between the oil filter and engine - it won't fit, it's a hard enough job just replacing the oil filter.
Plan B - get a 'T' piece and fit the new sensor(s) in the original sensor position - good idea with a single (probably silly question) - Where is the oil pressure sender on a 156 V6?
I did some searching on the forum, but to no avail.
Any information would be appreciated.

An even better option could be to use a sandwich plate to fit a remote oil filter (in a nice easy to reach location) then fit the temp & pressure sensors in the oil lines.

listen to david,tom.fit a remote oil filter and then you can have your extra oil sensors and also change your filter easier.
