what do i need

i was thinking of taking advantage of the black friday sale and buy me my fuel pressure gauge. but i have no idea what all the gauges are about with the sweep, full sweep and what not. i want a mechanical gauge not digital.
the fuel pres gauge adapter i will need correct? and does this screw into the fuel test port or what. and what else do i need to buy and what is the guage gonna come with.
help me out and what is the install like?

depends what kind of money you want to spend.... Glow shift has a gauge for like 55 bucks shipped and comes with everything needed to install. Full sweep means 270* sweep aka it goes all the way around... go a quick google search to compare the two

check out sinister diesel . com 's fuel pressure gauge adapter... And yes it would go on the test port on the fuel bowl.

I also need a fuel pressure gauge. Something reasonably priced and matches the factory gauges.

The autometer GS series matches the factory, or the isspro's, but theyre all 200+ for a fuel pressure gauge.

If youre on a budget get the Glowshift gauge youre spending 1/4 the price. However some may argue you get what you pay for but its worth a shot in my opinion.

I wish i could afford a c0ckpit (haha it filters ****) full of Autometer GS' or Isspros just not in the budget right now so i went with the glowshift setup, my money is going into maintenance and surviving the winter months.... we better be getting a bunch of snow

if you are on a budget, just use the fuel pressure test port on the filter housing and the factory cap. otherwise just get a billett cap. otherwise just get a gauge that looks good to you.

I have glowshift I bought on a budget. For the budge sense they are good. However I just order isspro oil/coolant temp ev2 gauges with complete intentions to completely swap over to isspro over time.

I even purchased their elite 10 series gauge just to see if I would like, let's just say it got returned.

To be honest I'd say spend a little extra and get the better gauge I wasnt the happiest with glowshift. They are good for what they are for. But I'd rather have quality gauge
