IF so then I'm looking for the size and thread count of the hole marked "B" below. Hopefully Tacoma Screw will have something.

Is this an aftermarket unit?
The sensor screws into the whole lower and to the right of the hole you marked B. I think that is the only place for it. I believe you need the pressure relief so unless the sensor has that built into it, I would avoid using that hole for the pressure sensor
I believe you can buy just the SOA sensor that should work with an aftermarket guage
hope this helps

I sort of forgot the part about "mechanical"
I see what you're talking about now. I believe the adapter to fit the "idiot light" is the way to go.
I believe the pressure relief valve is important.

The Subaru Pipe thread is VERY close to a 1/8 NPT pipe thread.. just thread in a 1/8 NPT tap, and throw in some plumbing fittings from home depot. That what you can keep your factory idiot light, and install a mechanical gauge.

I Would say that mounting the gauge in place of the pressure reliefe valve would give errorous signals, like when the valve is open or closed, just a thought. and is there really physical room for the sensor if you go off of the pressure relief?
Hope this helps

I just tapped the one in my justy for 1/8 NPT.
I t-ed off it for a oil feed for the turbo, then Autometer Gauge, and for the factory idiot light (also a warning light below the gauge)
Works perfectly. and no leaks

you need more than the standard length of tubing if you don't want the guage by the hood
