The PCM does look for the stock temp sender, I just haven't talked to anyone that actually has eliminated the stock oil sender.

As far as the other port on the passenger side head, I am pretty sure I drilled and tapped it for a 1/8" pipe and then bushed it down to the Auto Meter temp sensor. I can double check when I get home from this trip if you need it.
