where to find adaptor for feul prssure check

I can not find the right size adaptor to go into the 6mm port to check my fuel pressure. i have an injectore out and want to make sure low pressure is not the cause since the dealer didnt check it when it was in. Where did you guys get the part needed to tap into that port??

i went to homedepot but couldnt find anything. the problem seems to be this is not a NPT thread nor could i find a metric nut to fit over the 6mm plug that would tell me the metric size. I looked on the rotunda tool stuf but that is some high $$$ stuf for a one time check. Has any one found something at the hardware store that worked?

I also recommend the ITP hose. It's what I used and works great! If you want to build your own you will need a 12mm x 1.5 pitch to an 1/8"npt adapter. Good luck finding one locally. I'd buy the ITP hose and be done with it. It's a quality piece.

Thanks alot for the help guys I think I will just get the ITP hose and then I can just leave it in place and can always check it from time to time to keep up on it. Thanks again for the input guys this forum rocks.
