Turbo / oil pressure / water temp

I just got all of the appropriate vdo gauges and I believe the correct sensors for oil pressure, water temp, boost etc...for a 2.5td where are the appropriate places to tap...for the boost I have heard T the pipe from the turbo or from somewhere on the manifold? Water temp, do I just swap out the current sensor (where is it located) and does the system need to be drained first, and where would I put the oil pressure sensor?

Adam...

Yes
Yes, right by the thermostat housing
No
VDO sells a replacement sender with 2 poles. One for the light and one for the oil pressure gauge. You might need an extension fitting too to solve a clearance issue with the new sender.

It will power the gauge but not the warning light. Return it and get the double one. It will screw in on the plate between the engine and the filter. If you do a search you can find the thread pitch for the 90 degree adaptor.
