First off, welcome to FTE and the 6.0L forum.

You'll need a metric to NPT adapter. The test port on the side of the secondary fuel filter housing is M12x1.5 and you need to convert it to 1/8 NPT...something like this one. - Auto Meter 2277 Metric Adapter Fitting M12x1.5

I'm running an Isspro EV2 fuel pressure gauge in the A-pillar that allows me to monitor pressure anytime the truck/engine is running. Got it through RiffRaff which includes the adapter:

Riffraff Diesel: Fuel Pressure 0-100 PSI

I'm not a fan of China parts/tools, but this one is affordable when compared to the Snap-on tool set.

Fuel Pressure Tester & Fuel Injection Pump Tester

And just in case your not sure where it is...the test port is next to the fuel pressure regulator.
