Fuel "Schrader valve" Where / how to check pressure?

I have a fuel pressure guage that screws onto a regular Schrader valve on a gas fuel injected engine. It reads something like 0-100 PSI so I'm good there but is there a spot on the 6.0 to use one of these types of guages?

My FPG looks like the one below:

You will have to get the adapter that screws in on the fuel filter canister. I bought the ITP adapter, it has a schrader valve and a port to hook up a sending unit or gauge.

Any idea where to get it? Is that port that's plugged with a allen head bolt next to the cover for the fuel pressure spring?

I bought mine from strictly diesel.
6.0L Fuel Pressure Adapter
I installed mine the same time i put the blue spring kit in. Makes it a lot easier with the FPR removed.
