fuel gauge sender

I want to see where you guys put the sender for a fuel pressure gauge.

I just ordered a HPx, FRx and a fuel gauge. I wanted to see what anyone did with the sender/sensor unit, especially if you have a FRx. The one I got was a electronic in cab gauge, I figured if I'm gonna buy it, I might as well get one I can see at something besides idle. Aside from that, I heard they don't fair very well with the heat and vibrations.

Do these need a fuel bowl reading or a fuel rail (like t off the frx) reading? Or does it not even make a difference?

The fuel pressure sending unit should be placed in one of the two pressure ports on the fuel bowl. The upper port (driver side) is prefilter and the lower (passenger side) is post filter.
