BOOST GAUGE INFO
Boost gauges are available in many sizes. 0‑35 psi is widely used but with where things are going in the CTD world you'll be pegging it and not sure how much boost is actually being generated. I think a 0‑50 psi is sufficient but will use a 0‑60 psi gauge just in case.
Boost install kit comes with the boost gauge
Many drill and tap the air horn for hook up to motor. Piers Diesel Research, Inc. offers a BOOST BOLT
All you do is remove a bolt from the top of the engine and put the BOOST BOLT in the same hole. The boost bolt is already tapped for the boost gauge hose.
After the purchase of the gauge usually 0‑30 PSI you have to purchase other parts to complete installation.
Enterprise Engine Performance (EEP)
The EEP Isolator is pre‑primed with antifreeze for the connection between the isolator and the gauge. The Isolator is mounted under the hood with the antifreeze filled line ran through the fire wall into the cab and to the gauge.
The connection from the isolator to the motor is highly debatable. On certain model years there are ports on top of the fuel filter for the connection.
For the years that donít have the ported fuel filter cap, Geno's Garage has an after market billet fuel filter cap that is tapped for the FP gauge hose hook up.
Fuel Pressure (Cont.)
I chose to connect into the Schrader valve on my Vp44; itís like a tire valve stem with the needle inside. This is also known as a test port.
Geno's Garage has a special GG like hose that'll push the needle in when you tighten the hose down so removal of the needle is not necessary. There are more options for taping the motor for FP Gauge hook up.
Many use a standard Grease gun hose for the connection but this requires the removal of the needle inside the test port.
