2001 2.5L Oil Pressure Sending Unit Thread Size?

I would like to add a aftermarket oil pressure gauge to my truck. In do so I also want to keep the one on the dash working as it normally would. I will just Tee off the head install the factory sending unit on one size and the aftermarket on the other. I would like to do all the fittings need before I start so I need to know the thread size for the sensor.

Go to the auto parts store, they will have all the fittings needed.
Have them pull out a replacement oil pressure switch for your year/engine.
And pull out a PS60 universal oil pressure sender.

Then you can find the fittings you need, there is often not alot of room around the oil pressure switch so take a picture of where it is or better yet have the truck there so you can eyeball any issues

Drawing here, 2001 and earlier 2.3l and 2.5l are the same: http://repairguide.autozone.com/znet...3f8021b7e1.gif
