So I installed an electronic oil pressure guage and a test pipe at the sametime. Once the engine warms up at idle the guage shows zero pressure and I get a faint smell of buring oil. However the oil light in the dash never illuminates. No smoke out the exhaust, no leaks underneath, and new PCV valve. Any Idea's????

Where on the block did you connect the oil pressure sender to?

I pulled out the factory sender, installed a brass T-fitting, and installed both senders on that T-fitting.

Hmm, might be a ground issue caused by the brass fitting. Check for ground between the senders and the block. Did you use telfon tape or some kind of sealant on the threads? If you don't have a multimeter to check for ground, try leaving the stock sensor off and just leaving the aftermarket one in its place to see if it shows a reading.
