Is your setup a dry or wet sump? The 911 is a dry sump and the sender is in the oil tank.

I am sure that with enough thinking and cash, you could find a way to do something with it in a wet sump. It would take alot of mods in the engine case were there is little room for extra parts and the reading would move wildly as you turn, stop and go. I don't think it would be worth the effort if it can be done at all. But I have never tried it.
