Fuel pressure gauge

I'm trying to figure out what fuel pressure gauge setup to do before my turbo setup gets here.

I'd like to avoid putting the gauge outside the car, and I think that the electrical AutoMeter gauge for over $200 is overpriced.

SO, I found that VDO sells a pressure sending unit (says nothing about not using it with fuel) for $45: Click Here

And the actual gauge (1-150 psi) here for $26 (second one down):
Click Here.

And, of course they sell a boost gauge that matches.

I called the 'retailer' and they said that people have been using for fuel, but it is at your own risk. Have any of you seen people using this setup? If not, do you have any other alternatives that you use for fuel pressure inside the car that doesn't cost a fortune.

I looked for a less expensive alternative, but to do it right, I got the Autometer gauge. Look for a used one, that's how I found mine. Don't skimp. You are putting serious money into your car, why get cheap when it comes to the gauge?
