I have made myself a Fuel pressure gage to mount inside the engine bay but I need to know which line to tap. Kind of pointless to tap the return. I can not find a diagram outling this either.

Thanks

With the 2 lines on the false firewall, it is the bottom one.

The fuel lines goes: pump>filter>end of rail without the FPR>fuel rail>FPR>bottom of FPR>return to tank

Your entire fuel feed line is pressurized by the pump moving at a constant speed (voltage dependent), and the FPR bleeds off the excess pressure via the bottom of the regulator, where your return line starts.

Not that I am doubting you but my damn book showes the top line as the entry line. However that is on a V6 model.

Ok. Follow the line goes to the end of the fuel rail that "does not" have the fpr (front of car). That is your feed line.

Yeah I believed you it just tripped me out since the manual was different. That is why I asked in the first place.
