Are you trying to monitor your lift pump pressure, or your fuel rail pressure?

Some guys put a gauge on the lift pump itself so they can adjust while watching the gauge. There is a plug on the pump that you remove and install the gauge. There is also a bleeder screw adapter for the OEM filter head. The gauge mounts to it so you don't have to climb under the truck to check it. Post 40 on this thread shows a picture of the setup. http://www.duramaxforum.com/forum/alligator-diesel/150301-cat-filter.html I'm going with the gauge on the filter head. Why put a gauge somewhere that no one will ever see? :cool:

Instead of starting a new topic I have one quick question regarding my boost gauge. Im doing the T fitting since i have an LB7. My question has to do with the ppe boost increase valve. i plan on getting one in about a week where should i mount my boost gauge fitting? closer to the waste gate or the turbo? Should the arrows on the increase valve be pointing toward the T fitting for the gauge or other way around? very confused haha a picture or something would be great

Haha! I hope you're not asking me, because I have no idea. I am running the Edge CTS, so all my gauges come in a neat little package that plug and play. I'm sure if you sniffed around here enough you would find your answer. Here's a start. http://www.duramaxforum.com/forum/gauges-electronics-wiring/40674-lb7-boost-gauge-install-help.html and another, LB7 Boost Gauge Install - Diesel Place : Chevrolet and GMC Diesel Truck Forums and LBZ: pyro and boost gauge install - Duramax Diesels Forum and Gauge install on a lbz EGT & Boost - Duramax Diesels Forum Yes, a couple of those is for the LBZ, but same premise I would imagine. Didn't see anything about your arrow....
