Oil pressure sensor move

Hopefully someone can help with my stupid brain which is not working right now...

I'm having trouble mounting my chosen oil pressure sender. Any reason why I cannot use a short 90 degree fitting to allow mounting of the sensor in a better person for clearance.

Any reason why this wouldn't work?

Remote mount the factory sensor. Just use appropriate braided hoses and fittings.

Good way of keeping it away from all the vibrations and preventing failure.

That is how they fail. Pressure sensors are never to be mounted on an engine directly or any source of vibration. Mount to chassis with anti vibration pad.
