Fuel pressure gauge install

How and where do I install my fuel pressure gauge? I have the Aeromotive pressure regulator mounted right by the fuel rail on the passenger side. Do I have to put it on te fuel rail? I am not sure and I have no instructions. I know this is probally a stupid question, but I am new at this and I don't want to ^&$ it up. Thanks

I think that Aeromotive has a port for a FP gauge, but you would have to run a braided line to use it because there isnt' anywhere to go with it. Just buy a gauge with the correct fitting for the shrader valve in the fuel line. It's a simple process removing the needle in the line and screwing in the fitting for the gauge.

I just went out to my garage and looked at it. There seems to be a port at the bottom of the f/p/r. I believe I can tap into it like strkd347 has his in the post the pic of ur engine thread. I have a 45 and a straight fitting that I think will work. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks for the input.

If you can make it work, by all means do it. Just put in a place were you can easily read it. To make the shrader valve setup work, you'll need a 90 to make it work...otherwise it's tilted down making it hard to read.

I am looking to install my f/p/g tonight, but I have a couple questions. #1 if I install it off the S/V do I pull the pin out of it? If I do and after the pressure is relieved will it stop leaking or will I have to put a catch can below it? #2 Is it strong enough to support the gauge or do I need to make a bracket to support it? #3 my Aeromotive f/p/r has a port under the vaccum, is that a port for a f/p/g or is it for something else? I got the car after it was installed so I do not have the book for it. #4 If nobody knows about the port, should I plug in the gauge and see if it works? Whats the worst thing that could happen???? Thanks for the help as usual guys!

If you install it on the fuel line, yes you will have to pull the needle out. It comes out just like a valve stem needle. You won't need anything special to hold it on, besides the fitting that screws in. Once the pressure bleeds down you won't have gas pouring out all over the place.

Again, you can use the port for the gauge, it's just a matter of getting the right fittings for it.
