Fuel Pressure Gauge

Recommended Posts

3 Questions: 1. I looked at the Pricol Optix 2" Fuel Pressure Gauge (Elec) 0.30 PSI (BLK) on Geno's Website. Is this what I need to safely monitor my fuel pressure? 2. Is there a less expensive gauge that would serve the purpose? 3. I have a test gauge that came with the installation of my Banks P/P. Where do I find the fitting to connect it to check my pressure?

If you have a mechanical test gauge that you want to hook up to check your pressure you can use the test port on the side of your VP-44 fuel injection pump. If you don't have anything attatched to it right now it will have a schrader valve on it & it will have a plastic cap over it. VP-44 is on the drivers side of engine up in front of the fuel filter housing.....

Yes...

2. Is there a less expensive gauge that would serve the purpose?

Mechanical is much cheaper than electric...

Thanks Moparman. I found the port on the side of the engine forward of the filter housing. I got 18PSI @ idle so I'm guessing my FASS is doing its job. I will go the mechanical route for the gauge. Are they hard to install? Will get a single column mount from Geno's.Thanks Mohok
