Cheers,

I assume the fuel rail valve is the place to attach, just be sure to install a isolator by the firewall that sends a nonflammable liquid to the gage in the passenger compartment so no fuel gets inside in case of fire.

yeah - if there is a threaded test port on the fuel rail, I will either mount the transducer or an adaptor for the transducer directly to the fuel rail so I only have to run wires into the cabin.

Thanks,
Sam

Oh I was talking about a mechanical guage not electric. Mechanical is supposed to be much more accurate & reliable. Try autometer if you don't have one yet.

I prefer to use digital signals, they can be much more accurate if you have them setup correctly. Then you can use the signal to control a multitude of things (warning lights, nitrous safety switch, gauges, etc.)

Thanks though
Sam
