That looks nice Bill. Thanks for info guys. I'm not sure how or if I will do this. I'm just thinking of things I might do when I start messing around with the car in the spring.

Fuel pressure doesn't drop at WOT. It increases. You can get an aftermarket gauge and extend the line to see it. Or get a DVD HU with an external video input and patch in one of these under the hood:

That'* a good idea. I have not been successful in getting my electrical pressure sender to seal against 70 psi of fuel pressure so have the underhood gauge back on.

No leaks YET. You will if you keep the NPT. That'* not rated for fuel, and what you saved isn't worth your car. Particularly when your insurance doesn't pay off because of your risky modification.

And you run very close to 70psi at WOT. You might be surprised.

Sorry, i didn't think you were talking about my setup. I put it together with the kit i got from Autometer for their fuel pressure gauges so i didn't think it would be a problem. What kind of adapter should i be using then? You must be talking about the adapter from the sender to the Stainless line.
