Buick 215 V8 oil pressure gauge options

When the Buick 215 V8 is installed I understand the oil pressure gauge will not read correctly. What options are available? I want to keep the stock look of a 1978 MGB.

The oil pressure gauge will read with the same accuracy as before. I still use all my stock gauges in my '79 BV8.

You will need to mod your tachometer. Easy to do following this article below. Be sure & read the correction at the bottom of the page.
