fuel pressure gauge options?

since it seems that most everyone recommends monitoring fuel pressure i'm looking to get a fuel pressure gauge but i am not sure what to get. so i am curious to know what people are using or what they can recommend. is this an electronic gauge that people are mounting in a gauge pod on the dash etc. or can fuel pressure monitored through say an edge insight? any help will be appreciated.

You have to have an outside source for the guage. Insight or other obdII device doesn't measure fuel pressure. There's no parameter set up in the pcm to monitor that. I have an electronic guage in the cab and a sending unit on the fuel bowl in the engine bay on mine. It works good. Its Stewart Warner brand, but autometer has good guages too,

Try looking at this recent thread. Idea on a cheap fuel pressure gauge. Might want to PM the OP for more info.


Bought a dreaded 6.0L

When you buy the gauge, from whom ever it comes with the sensor. You want to buy the adapter that fits the test port, The get a remote stainless line to mount the sensor up near the fire wall, run wire inside to gauge. There will be instructions with the gauge as to what wires need to go where.

If you get a 90 degree adapter you don't need to remote mount the sensor. I've had mine mounted at the test port for four years with zero issues.
