The oil pressure sender thread is M10x1 on the newer engines and NOT 1/8' NPT.
Make sure you stick to the same type of sender.
If you try and fit the wrong one, you will damage the oil pump housing and you could get oil leaking or worse, if you strip the thread, you will need a new oil pump housing.
Make sure you fit the right one.

see SI-912-020 R6 section 79-00-00.

all the old sensors including the honeywell and VDO had 1/8NPT.
If you need to install a new 465180 sensor you can tap your old oil pump housing to cut new M10x1 threads.
Having straight threads allows the sensor to contact the housing; this greatly reduces the G forces (vibration) on the sensor.
I still prefer to remote mount the sensor.
