This is what i got for the fuel pressure gauge, it goes into the test port, this is a cool set up gets the sender away from the heat and viberation of the motor.

I'd get an electric sensor that goes right on the fuel bowl or where ever you 6.0 guys tap into it. one. Less chance of leaks.

I've got the 0-100 tinted 7 color series GlowShift and it's great. Comes with the sending unit. I also used the adapter from ITP. The whole setup is awesome. I've run GlowShift gauges in several vehicles. There are no problems that all the other gauges manufacturers don't see as well. My GlowShift has been working great for well over a year now, as a matter of fact I'm about to get the GlowShift 0-60psi boost gauge to match.

well just ordered a column pod and fuel adapter from strictly. also ordered a 0-100 glow shift gauge. if the gauge sucks ill buy a autometer one.

i figured if i have low fp then ill be ordering a airdog 2. so there's another $150 towards it.

2stroker, I noticed that column mount says it's for 99-04 trucks. Is that mount what you have? And if so did it work as it came or did you have to modify? I would love to have a column mount for my boost gauge.
