Racepak says not to mount directly to block due to vibration messing with the readings. Door car guys, where are you mounting them remotely? Assuming fittings with braided line?

What Greg is showing, I didn't know this until I had to by a replacement vacuum sensor because I had mine threaded right into the block, it didn't last long.

Ok thanks. I got the bigger 2 wire one, figured it would still have to be mounted on firewall some how.

I have put the oil pressure sensor on the block and have not had issues until I had a rod let go, the vibrations from this killed the sensor but it was good for a number of years prior. Still not a bad idea to isolate the sensors from the motor. I just didn't want to deal with another oil pressure line so I took my chances!

Tee it into the back of the gauge.
Less wiring and out of engine compartment.

If you happen to be running process line to the dash gauge? you can add a T fitting at the gauge for the sensor. That's what I did for Oil Pressure
