oil pressure sensor + filter relocation

i got my filter relocation kit today and i got a big oil cooler to put in with it. i also have a aftermarket oil pressure guage and a new sender for the stock guage. i was originally going to put a T where the stock sensor was to put both new sensors. but now im thinking i could put them both inline with the relocation kit for easy install. does the sensors go before or after the oil filter? the pressure would obviously be higher before the filter but i wasnt sure if thats how the stock sensor was

according to a diagram i found from steve, the pressure sensor is right after the filter. i guess it makes sense since that how much the engine is actually getting.

There's NO reason to have both, unless you like leaks & dead weight.

my aftermarket is digital, doesnt have that crappy tube so no leaks to be had. plus im a plumber, im sure i can make it not leak. im gonig to do the stock guage mod but i want/have a real guage with numbers so im doing both. i dont want to screw with trying to access the sender hole so id rather jsut plumb it with the relocation kit
