Fuel Pressure Gauge

i just ordered my 6.4 banjo bolts and the Blue Spring Upgrade Kit. is it recommended to run fuel pressure gauge after doing these upgrades?

IMO a fuel pressure gauge should be the FIRST thing anyone with a 6.0 should install along with a real oil pressure gauge not the stupid fake OEM one which is just a fancy idiot light. Just get yourself a 1/8" elbow add install the fuel pressure sender in the test port which is to left of where you put in the blue spring. Use a liquid type Teflon thread sealant here not the tape type.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

Good to know. So what would be the top three gauges? EOT fuel and...? Pyro? Boost? I've seen sinlge gauge pods all the way up to four but I think the three gauge pod looks best

What bully dog is that? I've heard they aren't any good for programming but what about monitoring? I'm not trying to build massive amounts of power just want to .monitor and have reliability

The gt tuner! I bought it from a buddy way to cheap to pass up! So when I switched to sct tuning I just kept it for a monitor plus it could mount in my pilar!! Most people on here us edge cts or scanguage 2 they say u can't monitor lots more at one time with the cts but there pricey!

I've been considering a cts or one of the touch screen ones (I know there's a few) but is it worth the money to get the bully just as a monitor?
