Fuel pressure gauge location...is that an accurate spot to get FP? How did you do it...did the billet cap come with that spot tapped for a gauge?

Yes that's the correct spot for the gauge location. Also most, if not all of the billet caps I've seen come pre tapped for a 1/8th NPT fitting.

That fuel filter cap/guage combo makes me want it.

I'm not a big fan of the bypass kit yet but please keep this updated. I'm not scared of change, just scared of the change being a bad thing.

Like the current state of our country....

What did the setup cost, including the billet caps if you don't mind me asking? Looks great BTW.

With the fuel pressure gauge on the cap, you are getting the reading on the wrong side of the filter. You have to get your reading from the test port, that will give you a true reading. look here Page 30: Fuel Supply System. It look good but wrong side.
