    Copper oil pressure line routing?

    If you are worried about using plastic line, don't . It has been supplied for many decades with oil pressure gauges. But, if you seal the gauge end you could run the tubing through a rubber hose sleeve and through the firewall. Any leakage will run out to the ground. Mike
