    Permanent Fuel Pressure Gauges?

    I can find a universal gauge and adapter to mount on the fuel rail in the engine compartment,,,but can't seem to find the style that uses a sending unit so you can mount the gauge inside the vehicle (gauge pod or something)

    Seemed all the LS stores used to sell alot of these, now I no longer see them listed. Anyone have another source?

    You can mount any universal gauge/sender and pick up an adapter to mount the sender on the rail.
    I forget which adapter you need but i can look it up later if you'd like

    Just to make sure we are on the same page......I'm talking about the sender that sends a signal rather than fuel to the gauge, so you can mount the gauge inside the car without running fuel in the passenger compartment.

    These used to be sold as a kit just for the LS style fuel rails and 4th gens. Can't seem to find them anymore. If you have a link that would be great,,,thanks.

    Wow thanks Smittro. I was looking at all those ebay links and was shocked to see a gauge like this so cheap. Evo has been around for a long time making digital gauges, and this includes the sending unit and munting hardware for only $75?? Sounds to good to be true. Last time I did an inside fuel pressure gauge I spent $200.

    Anyone familiar with the gauge I have in the link below?

    No prob! Ebay is always buyer beware.

    I try only to go with sellers with a 99.8% rating or higher and try to stay with top rated sellers as a general rule.

    I'm an Ebay power buyer, so I have covered just about anything you can think of..

    Reading more on it, I can pick green or white for a color, it's dimmable, and the face is blank when it's off.

    I showed my wife and she liked it, want's me to order one I'm thinking about getting a pair, one for my blazer (LS swap) and one for my wifes LS camaro.

    I don't see a pic of the sender but it sounds like I could adapt it to the fuel rail pressure fitting easy enough? Maybe with a 1/4" pipe thread fitting?

    All I need for her camaro is a single A-pillar gauge pod to mount it in. Any links for that Smittro? (I have a spot in the blazer to put the gauge).

    Shucks, I just noticed that gauge is a bid and not a buy-it-now. Ugh....I don't want to get into a phantom bidding war.

    Does that snap on? I'd hate to drill holes in the A-pillar.

    Looks like yes it does or may use something like 3m adhesive tape, (or you can do that yourself).

    You'd have to use the contact seller feature to ask.

    Hey Smittro, even though this is a "bid on" item,,,,I went to this guys website (prosportgauges) and you can buy these directly off his website for $76 and there would be no risk of someone running the bid price up that way. Only $10 to ship.

    Sound like a good way to go?? Thoughts?

    Ya I realized it was the same one I posted earlier so I pulled it down..

    If you can get this dirrectly I would. cut's the middle man (ebay) right out.

    I personally speak to sellers when I buy big ticket items and have yet in 4 years to have issues.
