fuel pressure monitoring

I have an Edge Insight and looking to monitor fuel pressure. Has anybody used the fuel pressure monitoring system from Edge? I am also considering a Phanton II gauge. What are you guys using for fuel pressure monitoring?

i have the edge EAS system that i am using for fuel pressue. works great. I bought the steel braided line from strictly to remotely house the pressure sensor so it stays out of the way of harm.

I wanted to get the EGT probe as well so I think just using the Insight to monitor everything is probably the best idea. Just the Phantom II gauge is like $200. How much does the EAS system run?

Full EAS system runs $130 for the EGT and starter kit, and another $130 for the pressure sender. The Insight system ends up being very clean installation in the end. Don't forget the isolation hose to run from the Fuel Bowl test bowl (around $80, from Sinister), or you can go trough a billet cap (costs a bit more).

I run an Autometer GS, for Fuel Pressure myself. As I prefer the traditional gauge.

There is a link in my sig with the part numbers for you, and more information to get the most out of that Insight.

6.0L Fuel Pressure Adapter

Will this adapter work with the Edge pressure sender?

That is the isolation hose I was referring to.

I haven't heard of any issues with it and the Insight expansion. Pretty standard threading for these senders.
