I suggest you put it in the hole for the front main. This is the farthest from the oil pump and will tell you if there is a problem anywhere in between. If you hook it to the back of the block you could have a undetected problem farther forward.

I put mine in the front left corner on my BB. Big gear head is absolutely right.

Cap off all by the filter and remove the one on the bottom front driver's side of the block. There is also one just around the corner in the front of the block that will work just as good. If you are using the plastic tubing for the gauge be VERY carefull of heat from the headers! I've seen a few big blocks go bad quick from the tubing melting and all the oil being pumped on the ground before the driver noticed it. I almost lost 2 this way myself. The Auto Meter pro light is real good for this purpose.
