    I have been told that if you do run a T-peice then don't use brass as the vibrations can snap it off and that will destroy your engine. I can't see that happening to something out of steel though

    Yep, wrote about that in my build thread as I had that happen to me a year ago. It isn't so much the vibrations alone, but the vibrations combined with the weight of the pressure sender and switch hanging off the brass.

    I ran a single line from the block to a remotely mounted T-piece in the engine bay. No issues at all now
