I have their 4-gauge pod and I think if I were to do this over again I wouldn't get their fuel pressure gauge. I'm having issues with it bouncing from high 50s to low 40s / mid 30s but only at about 1500 RPM. I thought this behavior was at all engine speeds but it doesn't appear so now that I'm watching it a little more closely. Also, if I just back off the throttle pressure returns to normal. GlowShift tech support said I had a loose connection but I've checked that and that's not the case. Someone else here had a similar issue and he got a new pressure sensor but GlowShift has not extended that to me (yes I've emailed).
I did purchase the adapter piece from GlowShift and that moved the sensor away from the fuel filter bowl enough to mount it (I removed the test port plug and connected there). I now have the hose from DieselSite (I think) that moves the sensor completely off the engine and onto the body (mine is by the brake master cylinder). I may move the sensor back to the adapter from GlowShift and see if the fluctuating reading goes away.
I like the relocation hose because the sensor is off the engine, there isn't as much interference between the fuel filter bowl / lines / etc. and the sensor, and there is a Schrader valve to bleed air from the line.
I like the adapter because there is less hose between the fuel filter bowl and the sensor, but the sensor is very close to lines / bowl / housing (you'd have to remove the sensor to change to a blue spring for instance) and there is no bleed valve.
I didn't need the adapter when I got the relocation kit from DieselSite.
