    The fuel rail has a pressure tap that you remove the cap & valve stem, then hook the sending unit to it. Be careful not to over tighten & twist the fuel rail ! If you have a NOS presure switch, you need a T fitting to hook up both ! Good Luck !

    yeah i knew that when i ordered them....its a never ending battle. but its needed and worth the hassle. also to hide the wires is fun to...i like stock appearing besides the lingenfelter intake and lid.lol

    how far does the fuel pressure gauge need to go? 0 to 15 or 0-100 psi

    I drilled a hole beside the steering column from the inside, above the carpet. Accessible below the brake booster...

    well, at idle your fuel pressure should be 58psi so you'll need the 0-100psi. Also, if you drill your own hole in the firewall make sure you put a grommet in it so the wires don't end up chaffed. You can get grommets at just about any parts store and they're cheap.

    there is a gromet in the firewall on the passenger side near where the computer sits in your engine bay.

    It might drop under heavy loads, but should hold around 58lb or so... You might get away using the 0-60 guage... If it would drop a lot, you might want to upgrade the fuel pump !!!
