What do you think of this Fuel Pressure setup?

I am thinking of pulling the trigger on this thing today so I can monitor my fuel pressure. It is a smokin deal at $80.00 shipped. Let me know what you guys think. It comes with the gauge, wiring harness, and sending unit so I think that is everything that I need other that the adapter which is another $8 from them.

Well went ahead and pulled the trigger. Also went with the sinister diesel fuel pressure adapter so that I can relocated the sending unit away from the engine. I did some research and found many satisfied owners with this setup.

Feel free to still comment on this setup even though I have purchased it already..

On another note...What do you think of this setup? Do you think this will get rid of all the OEM fuel delivery system woes and add more power at the same time? My truck feels like it is starving for fuel for some reason. I feel a noticeable loss of power recently and ford just checked everything and said everything is good and normal after replacing the OEM FICM with the SWAMPS 48v FICM. The only thing they did not check was the fuel system for some reason. I also have the updated blue sping kit sitting in my room ready to install, just have to find the time and dont want to put it in until I can moitor my fuel pressure(hence ordering the gauge)

Elite has very good stuff but be forewarned that they're costumer service has an EXTREMELY bad reputation on the forums, even when your buying five figures worth of parts from them. They say they are working on improving, but only time will tell. I for one am really hoping so.

A regulated return fuel system isn't required for these trucks.

Get the blue spring, some 6.4L banjos, an AirDog 100 or 150 (or AD II) and a fuel tank sump (optional).

I agree it is not really needed but anything to makes my injectors live longer IMO is a good idea. 6.4 banjos are debatable. A lot of guys say it makes absolutely no difference in a street truck. IDK

Any update with your install?

I purchased the same set up minus the sinister adapter. and from what ive found is most of people using the adapter are using it with the larger adapter found the with glowshift tinted 7 gauge, however the one i have in my elite10 gauge is a lot smaller. Im wondering if the adapter is even gonna been needed.
