Oil Pressure / Oil Temp

Has anyone fitted an Oil Pressure and/or an Oil Temp sending unit on seperate from the ECU? I understand there is a Oil Pressure sending unit post filter but that as long as the oil pumping is picking up and pumping oil through the filter it never shows as anything wrong?

I purchased a DashBoss unit, which I believe is similar to DashCommand. It plugs into the ODB2 port and sends info via Bluetooth to my iPhone. DashBoss has the capability to add in 2 additional sensors. I was originally thinking of getting the EGT sensor they sell and installing it closer to manifolds instead of using the O2/temp sensor downstream further. But since there is no Oil Temp and poor placement (and to date DashBoss does not read Oil Pres) of the oil pressure unit, I would be interested in installing them to get better information.

Thus far I am happy with DashBoss, I wish I had the $$$ to compare DashCommand and DashBoss since I have iDevice. I think Android users have Torque app.

I hope someone has some good insights.


By the way: I just purchased a 2008 Grand Cherokee Limited QD2 150k miles. Have owned it for about 2 weeks now. Working on getting parts for EH Mod (tnadanzig CB Engineering)
