After first Startup...ecu runs fine, but no oilpressure
Only 0,5-1bar pressure at 2000 rpm....that sucks

Hi Markus! You guys should see the car in person,it´s very well done! Did you bleed the oil lines and oil cooler properly Markus? Also check your oil pressure gauge or swap it with a gauge that you know works.
Another possible reason could be that your pick up tube inside the case isn´t properly fit or too high above the sump.The pick up tube may not be able to suck enough oil if it is not properly installed.That would be a problem because you may have to open the case again.I hope that´s not the reason and it is something simple..

I love this dash, can we get more pictures? You did this with 914 gauges correct?

I've seen a few custom dashes like this on here and would love to see an in-depth "How to/DIY" from start to finished product cause I would like to do the same for my project

we have opened the case again and hope to find the problem

one of the plugs blocks the oilchannel (only 50% of the diameter are open)

@Turbo
we have checked all things befor open the case again..

Have to drill out the plug and hope that the oilpressure will ok now.

Another little Proble was the Mahle bearings...
seems they are not fitting like K&S bearings, 6/100mm smaller in diameter than the K&S bearing...that sucks

Change also the mahle bearings to kolbenschmidt
