Advice Requested - should I get a 100PSI or 75PSI Oil pressure sender?

All:
I'm looking for small tweaks to make to my tbird and one area which would help us would be to upgrade from our existing Autometer short sweep oil pressure gauges to a fancier one.

I already use these AuberINS industrial gauges for water/oil temp and they work great. Not really automotive looking but neither is the rest of my car.
Automobile Multimeter, Dual Channel [SYL-2813] - $79.95 : auberins.com, Temperature control solutions for home and industry


I plan to buy another 2 display module (for future upgradability) above and one great benefit of this sensor is that you can set it up to trigger an external relay (ex: like a car horn alert or a fan) above/below a certain temp. I used to have an oil pressure monitor so having this back would give me piece of mind again. Because shitty racecar.

I have two options for the oil pressure sensor:

75PSI - $63
Accurate within 1.5% - 1.125PSI
5 BAR (75 PSI) Gauge Pressure Sender, 1/8NPT [AUBER-P205g] - $63.00 : auberins.com, Temperature control solutions for home and industry

100 PSI - $55.63
Accurate within 1.5% - 1.5PSI
7 Bar (100 PSI) Gauge Pressure Sender, 1/8 NPT [AUBER-P207] - $55.63 : auberins.com, Temperature control solutions for home and industry

Q: which one should I buy?
I'm thinking that since i've seen nearly 70PSI before at WOT when the engine isnt' completely warmed up, I'm guessing the 100PSI solution is the better choice.

What say you folks?

I would get the 100PSI. My car on startup used to be around 75PSI or so, so I wouldn't want to peg the gauge, as it wouldn't tell me if there was a problem.

I say get the 100psi one, only because its cheaper. You really aren't going to have a problem with oil pressure being too high, and the only thing you want to know is if it gets too low.

There's not much to report here as I've already had this system in place in my tbird for a few years now to measure the coolant and oil temps. You can see it on this panel. I most recently made a sun shield b/c my instrument panel is at an angle and at some parts of the day (basically morning and evening when the sun comes right into the windshield), it becomes harder to read the temps at a glance.

What 6V?
The sensors are driven by the AuberINS gauge.
Here's the instruction manual.
