Looking for Fuel Bowl Cap with Pressure Fitting/Tap

I am about to install a fuel pressure gauge. I was discussing this with my shop and he mentioned an "easy" way to plump the sending unit in, but he couldn't recall who sold it. Its a fuel bowl cap with the pressure fitting/tap. Does anyone know who might sell one of these?

Try ITP as well. I just got mine installed tonight when the remote locater came in from them. It mounts to the fuel bowl pressure test port. Came with all the fittings for the 6.0 so no running around to find adaptors. Takes the sender away from the motor to save it from constant vibration. It took me about 30 min to install and route to a rubber mounted bracket on the truck. It has no needle shake at all. Its at least worth a look.

The problem with reading the pressure at the cap is that it's before the filter.
Checking it at the test port is after the filter... this way you will see a truer reading of the pressure going to the injectors.
