    Thinking about installing a oil pressure gauge in my 07 tacoma, looks semple enough to do on my own.
    What I need to find out is what thread & size is the oil pressure decending unit? I am thinking of using a T fitting so I can use the oil light and a oil pressure gauge, the motor is V6 4.0 think I found a good place to put the oil pressure gauge, under the air duck next to the instrument panel, a part of the dash pops out, and it is just the right size for the gauge.
    Thanks for any info.

    You could remove the existing one and check or the easier way, go to the parts counter and ask to see one (Dealer or Parts store) Good luck and post some pics when you have it installed! !!

    Thanks Don,
    I will just ask the parts guy if they have one in stock, and see if I can size it with the T fitting, that should work thanks.
    As soon as I finish the job I will post some pictures.
