Where can I 'T' off the fuel line to add a sensor for a fuel pressure gauge?

Do I need to drain the fuel out of the fuel line before cutting in to it? Most cars keep the fuel under pressure after you shutoff the motor right?

get a fuel dampener bypass and get the adapter for fuel pressure gauge for about 10 bucks for the adapter and $70 bucks for the bypass from www.directedengineering.com.

You put the pressor sensor in at the fuel filter. Once you pop the stock line off all the gas will come out of the rail. You fuel pressure will drop and you should be good to go.

See the other thread on this same question. I'd shut the fuel pump off (there's a connector in the trunck you can pull) and turn the engine over until it dies. That will relieve the fuel pressure. Make sure you don't work on your fuel system in a garage with any source of flames (duh, but don't forget if you have a natural gas water heater or furnace).

Sounds good. I went to their site and found the bypass, but I couldn't find any adapter. Are you just talking about a adapter from a hardware store? or from Direct Engineering?

XCELR8,

"(duh, but don't forget if you have a natural gas water heater or furnace)."

As stupid as it may sound, that was damn good reminder!!!

Thanks,
