which fuel pressure guage?

Ok this may be somewhat of a noob question but I am adding a couple more guages and want one to be a fuel pressure gauge in the cab. Its gonna be an autometer z series. I know it has to be the 0-100 psi guage is that correct? Im just trying to figure out it I need the full sweep electric guage or just mechanical or what cuase they are very different price. I was looking at beans page and these are all the ones I could find in the z series.

Beans Diesel Performance (Powered by CubeCart)

If anybody can point me in the right direction of which gauge to go with it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

On powerstroke nation they are trying to get the isspro sponsor to bring up to the board to make a quad pillar for the OBS and they are getting a lot of interest so it may be coming. I got a brand new oil temp guage for really cheap then I want two or three more and Im gonna use the SD gauge mount that sits below the rear view mirror, Ive seen pics of guys that have them work on the OBS

yeah, that is what I was thinking about doing(sd overhead pod). have you seen the thread down in the vendor section in the ISSPRO spot? you buddy matt(highlands) started a thread called "quad pod for obs". it has a pic in there of the sd pod in a obs. looks pretty decent actually

You NEED to get an electric gauge. You do NOT want fuel run into the cab. If it ruptures a hose or the gauge you'll have 50 or 60 psi of fuel spraying into the cab. NOT a good thing.

So far I've got a pyro, boost, drive pressure, fuel pressure and tranny temp on the A pillar and one hole that just has a plug with my old chip switch in it that will eventually get a dual IAT gauge. But then again I had to build the pod myself with the help of my bro.
