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.

I'd also try JEGS they will likely have them too.
I get their cataloge every month it's full of stuff like this..

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?

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.

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?
