Thanks for he links. If I remember correctly I think mine is welded shut. You can see where the spot would be. At least the pan isn't that expensive to get. Where do you have your oil pressure sensor reading from?

I have a custom junction block that Issam Abed can make you. It uses the factory oil pressure sensor coming off the oil filter carrier and mounts using the alternator bolts.

Very neat. If you don't mind me asking how much did this cost?

Sorry to bump a sort of dying thread, but you can purchase a wortec oil pan from moddedeuros that adds 1L capacity of oil and is pretapped for an oil temp sensor. It also has fins on the bottom to promote better cooling. It's a little pricey though (~$480 after 5% golfmk6forum coupon).

Yup. I had one. Great product if you live in the south. Not good if you live where it's cold. The increased capacity doesn't let the oil warm up in the winter which is very bad for your engine.

Yeah it already takes long enough for the oil to heat up fully in these cars.

Here's something that may be an easier solution:

Ordered this from USP as my drain plug adapter isnt too accurate i feel. Doesnt fit. Hole in adapter too small and none of the adapters fit our oil filter threads. Anyone have a better solution?

Thanks for the input. Could a bigger hole be drilled in it? At this point it would cost way too much to get oil temps and pressures. If I tracked my car a lot it would be worth it, but as a DD it's not cost effective.

The material is pretty thin around the hole, it would be risky to DIY it IMO. They have a plate that may work, but it has oil cooler line fittings. Im inquiring if they have something with a bigger bore. I'm assuming our filter is m22 threaded. Anyone have one they can measure?
