Default Best way to test fuel pressure on 3.1/3.4

what'* the easiest way to check fuel pressure on a 3.1 or 3.4 engine? the power steering hoses in the way. One of my service manuals calls for an adapter piece that costs 300 bucks. and I feel pressure tester that costs around 900. No thanks.

I do have a fuel pressure tester that I got from AutoZone that has worked on other cars. it seems like I just need the valve fitting adapter for it and also a way to fit my guage in there
