I am adding a fuel & oil presure, and water temp gauges. Where is the best place to make place the senders? Fuel I belive the front of the filter housing has a test port, but the others I have no idea. Pics are worth a thousand words.

Oil pressure you can drill and tap the top of the oil filter cap...that's what I did. Just use an OEM type connector so you can separate the wires for filter changes.

Water temp...there's a block drain plug on the driver side of the block...easy to spot. You'll lose all your coolant be prepared for that.
Mine is tapped into a t-fitting for my coolant filter.
I don't know how accurate it is...just throwing the option out there for a mounting spot. I didn't use that plug myself.
As for the oil...I looked everywhere I could...and couldn't find a good spot to mount my oil temp and oil pressure I got the billet cap from Oilguard and used the 1/8NPT hole in that to T off the senders. No issues so far.
