Default 130 oil psi and.....?

just did an engine swap for my 2000 buick ultra, now my pressure reads 130psi and my fuel gauge reads E, fuel gauge was fine before. Any comments would be appreciated, thanks

Replace the oil pressure sensor (sending unit)
Use a GM one to install only.

No reading at fuel gauge..hmmm..I will let others comment on that one.
