Fuel pressure gauge... what to do?

I want to monitor fuel pressure in my 6.0.
I have a triple A-pilar with Isspro EV1 gauges (boost, trans temp and EGT)
Also have Edge CTS.

So what have you done or what would you do to monitor fuel pressure?

You need to connect a pressure sending unit and gauge to the test port on your engine mounted fuel filter or get one of the billet fuel filter caps that has a tapped hole in it. No other way.

Yeah... CTS or another gauge? Seems like a lot of $$$ to get the CTS to monitor FP.

This is the way i went i have the older edge but not for long that way i can watch 9 things at one time some guys go with the Glow gauge but i just like the Autometer or Isspro i have the Isspro in my 97
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.
