Installing glow shift fuel pressure gauge?

From my understanding I need the adapter bolt to the fuel bowl and then screw in the sensor that comes with it then it's just wiring from there correct?

Yep. You will need an adapter. Sending units are 1/8NPT and test port is 12X1.5. Some sending unit are smaller than others.....
GlowShift Ford 6.0L Diesel Fuel Pressure Adapter
Sensor Relocation Hose Kit
I used the relocation kit to make the installation cleaner. I had to replace the adapter O-ring. The one from Glowshift was junk.
Use the pressure test port on your upper fuel filter housing.

You will need the adapter no matter what. After that you can use any 1/8NPT hose/line you want or just put the sender right on the fuel bowl.
You might have some harness issues with that 03 engine in a 07. Several sensors got moved from 03 to 07. ICP etc...

I got the fitting from Glowshift, but when I screwed it into the test port the whole set up was still really loose. Like the previous poster I too swapped the O ring, but I still wasn't comfortable with how it sealed. I added some Teflon tape to the threads. I filled the fuel bowl back up, but haven't started the truck so I don't know if it will leak yet.
