I was wondering the same thing. There are 2 ports however on the OFH. Since both sides see pressure my thoughts would be to mount the pressure sending unit on the pre filter side and the accusump on the post filter side. It looks like the axle is right there so some clever fittings and a remote braided line is probably needed but a braided line is advised anyway.

Someone should edit the original post those plugs have high temp thread sealant that wont break loose unless it sees about 500 degrees

If you are able to get the right sized allen socket on there, use a breaker bar with extension and it should loosen fairly easily. Just make sure the allen socket is seated fully into the plug. I was able to remove mine without using a torch to heat it first. I don't like the idea of fire near that area of the car. If the thread is damaged when you remove it, then it was very likely damaged when Mitsubishi installed it. It is an NPT thread after all.

Don't forget to put some permatex thread sealant before you a plug back in or else it will leak oil. Ask me how I know ....
