Fuel pressure gauge

Just ordered a glowshift fuel psi gauge and adapter. Are they any suggestions for installing and mounting? I have a dash pod for my insight. I was thinking next to that.
Thanks in advance.

Some guys are using the steering column mount. I kindof like that.

Does the insight not have analog inputs? I would have bought the adapter, electric sender and hook it up to the monitor. Cheaper and less gauges.

I really like my steering column gauge pod. Honestly, I'm glad I didn't hook it up through the insight.

Almost 500 to replace egt probe and then get all the expandable cables and adapter for pressure. No way is it cheaper. I got the gauge and port adapter for under 100 bucks.

I like the column pod, got it from strictly diesel. If you have an aftermarket radio, you can tap into those lines for constant and ground and dimmer when you turn the lights on. Strictly sells the vht spray also and I had to use some double sided tape to keep the pod on the column and shave some of it out with a serraded blade to keep the pod from popping up when I put it into park. maybe an hour or two job if the pod gives you issues like mine did. But now it's on and good to go.

How did you connect it to the cts without the expandable cable that cost $150?

I don't have a cts, I have the new sct 5015 livewire ts. That's why I was asking if the cts would do it.

Unfortunately it is quite expensive to expand it for external sensors.
