Fuel Pressure
« on: January 03, 2019, 11:58:06 AM »
I've lately become interested in my fuel pressure....
#rocketshipcockpit and all that.
Does anyone have a small gauge permanently teed into their fuel supply line? What brand, whered you get it, and whatd it cost?
Alternatively, if I got an aftermarket fuel pressure regulator and just jammed it between the discharge hardline off the IM and the line back to my tank, would that work? I know lots of FPRs have gauges or gauge options... Or would I need to gut/bypass the stock FPR?

Not entirely sure what they do with the oem regulator.

I have this gauge in the Forester:

(probably not what you're looking to spend ;) )

And a Radium FPR (this I think). All the custom lines we made eliminated the OEM regulator.

There is a post with some pictures in here. Looks like they gutted the oem FPR

 :-*Lol just drill right thru. I love it.
I'd be scared of rupturing the diaphragm sending fuel right into the vac line.
