There is several ways of getting a boost gauge hooked up. I took the easiest way. I got a 3/4" to 1/2" steel bushing. Then used a 1/2" to 1/8" brass bushing. There is a pipe plug right next to the fuel filter. There is several stories about how to do you pyrometer probe. I'm going to explain my method. I center punched the manifold on the rear port where I wanted to drill my hole. I greased my drill bit and drilled slowly with a shop vacuum next to the bit. After drilling I used both a magnetic screwdriver and a Q-tip to pick up any metal chips. Then I greased my tap and tapped my hole. I checked the manifold again in the same way as above. Then install your probe as directed by the manufacture. Fuel pressure gauge was installed using a tapped banjo bolt. As you can see in the lower picture this is the hardware I used to plumb the fuel pressure gauge. There is NO ISOLATOR in my system. But I do have a needle valve to shutdown the fuel flow if a leak occurs. Needle valve $8.00 at NAPA Weatherhead (WH6820) If you get the Cummins Campaign Pump you will get a free banjo bolt... UPDATED! Since I upgraded my fuel lines to Vulcan Big Line Kit. The kit comes with a 1/8" NPT port for tapping for a test port or fuel pressure gauge. In this picture you see the needle valve and pressure switch for a low pressure light. You might be asking what did I pay for my gauges. I paid $309.00 for the 3 gauges, the a-pillar pod, and a can of grey paint. I purchased it through. Diesel Performance Parts Inc. As for the needle valve I got that at my local NAPA store for $8.00. The part number is a Weatherhead part (WH6820) As For the nylon tubing. I got that at my local autozone store for $10.00 a set. Just look for oil pressure gauge plumbing kits. Low pressure switch and tapped banjo bolt came with my Carter Campaign pump. (4090046) $50.00 Boost gauge connection is going to require a bushing 3/4" NPT to 1/2" NPT also a brass bushing 1/2" NPT to 1/8" NPT. The steel bushing I got at my local hardware store for $2.29 and the brass bushing I pulled from the oil pressure plumbing kit. http://mopar.mopar1973man.com/personal/2002/gauges/gauges.htm
