Go into your local supercheap auto and go to where the guages are , the adaptor kind of looks like an extension but has an extra hole to fit the pressure sender aswell . The brand is calibre and i dont remember the full part number but it ends in 23002 cost me $14 . Good luck mate . As you will soon find out its not as easy as it looks but if you need some info just let me no

i went to auto barn today gave the guy the part number for the adapter and hes like "should be in around 2weeks time, or u can pay 30 bucks shipping and have it in a week, oh and its 20 bucks for the part" i wasn't to impressed, especially after i asked the guy when i bought the gauge if i need anything else to install it and he said no.
im already planing a trip to supercheap auto tomorrow i will defiantly go in and grab it, thanks a million.
and OMG the factory sensor is a b**ch to get off, i tryed to get it off, after about 1 hour, i got a deep socket 19mm and it wasn't deep enough so i have to loosen it by turning the socket with my hand, im gonna get some bad burns when i go the put the sensor on cause i aint gonna wait for the engine to cool down
