I got mine from Diesel Manor, along with the fuel pressure gauge.

By the Way........ what's the correct fuel pressure I should be seeing with the blue spring upgrade ?

My gauge sits very steady on 65psi............. is this correct ?

TIA.............

If you want to order on online Glowshift sells the adapter only, but as posted above any tubing or hose shop should be able to hook you up

ihandy....check out ITP (think they're merged with MKM Customs/Sinister)...they have a nice line with a schrader valve.

GSlahor....I read a steady 65psi...sometime it sits at 67.

I took the old plug left over from the blue spring upgrade drilled out the center then brazed on an air fitting so I could attach a hose with a guage to check the pressure worked great
