watching the fuel psi...

Okay guys looking for some advice here...Looks like the next thing on my list is gonna be monitoring the fuel pressure. I do have the EDGE CTS already but it looks like it will cost me another $300 +/- for the eas sensor input and the eas pressure sensor itself. I do like the plug n play part but Im open to ideas. And I am hearing grand ma in the back of my head..."dont put all your eggs in one basket!!"
So looks like budget is around 300. Maybe a pillar set up? What would you guys suggest. Thanks

Steering column or single pod below the bar and a glowshift fuel psi gauge.

I would get a set of glowshift max tow gauges for boost, EGTs, fuel pressure.

Glowshift Fuel pressure gauge: $41.00 shipped (used on ebay) - cost new $60
Strictly Diesel fuel port adaptor with schrader, 1/8 npt port, and hose: $55.48 shipped
Single pod on my pillar: $20 (ebay)

I'm in the same boat with my CTS. I think I'm going to go with an additional gauge instead of getting the sender to the CTS. I've always liked gauges, and I think fuel pressure would be a good one to have available all the time (instead of toggling through it on the CTS).

I was looking at Autometer, but those Glowshift Max tow gauges look pretty sweet. The price is nice too!

Now I just gotta figure out where to mount it.

I have the maxtow 0-60 psi boost gauge and I REALLY like it. In fact, I liked it so much, I bought another one to use for back pressure and I bought a fuel pressure one too.

I've been doing alot of studying on past threads becuase I also need to add a fuel pressure gauge. I decided on adding a steering pod but i've been reading ALOT of problems with the glowshift gauges so i went with autometer z series . My buddy has a set of glowshift gauges and none of them are working at the moment and there just over a year old. I think if your not looking to spend much for sure go with the glowshift but plan on tinkering with it later down the road. If your looking for longevity I would stick with an autometer or isspro gauge for example, you'll never have to touch it again. You can pick up a autometer fuel pressure gauge off ebay for around 165.00. This is jmo of course.

I gambled and went with the GS Elite 10 series gauge and steering column mount. No issues whatsoever...

So far, out of the two trucks that I have seen them in and now put them in mine as well. GlowShift gauges seem to work just fine. I know folks scoff at the price but I bought a $200 ProParts Spek 0-60 boost gauge that was a POS. The max tow boost gauge is VERY accurate.
