Yeah 100 psi would be good, stock will be around 55psi. Make sure you get a electonic gauge, you don't want fuel running up inside your passenger compartment.

I believe someone has said there is a schrader valve somewhere around the fuel bowl.. I have yet to really look for it and you can hook into there. A electronic fuel press gauge is very easy to install. I put one on my 96 cobra couple years ago when I put a vortech on her. They work very well.
