Default Electric Fuel Pressure Gauge install

I need help...

I have a Autometer C2 Electric Fuel pressure gauge for my 04 GT...i thought it was going to be easy to install the sender and such because of the schrader valve on the end of the passanger side fuel rail...i pop the hood to check and there isnt a freakin schrader valve! WTF! come to find out after research they dicontinued it in 04...all the 99-03 GTs have it but mine! freakin sweet

There is something that looks like the schrader valve on the side passanger side strut tower...is that where it would go?

Anyone ever installed one on an 04 GT...where to put the sender?

PLEASE help!

LOL, your going to have to get another fuel rail from a 99-03 mustang.

the schrader valve thing your talking about does it have a green and black cap? if so than those are for the AC service hoses.

edit: ROFL you posted in the wrong section on modular powerhouse. i hate how this VB makes MPH say (miles per hour)

You can get 02 or 03 fuel rails, or just get a fuel block to put on the drivers side fuel rail.

You do not need to get new fuel rails. They sell an adapter that goes under you fuel pressure regulator on the drivers side . Here ya go man

The adapter has 2 ports, so you could use the other one for some thing later down the road. Plus I think its a lot cleaner look. If you care about that sort of thing

Sorry, I guess I can't give my opinion. I'm starting to realize why I left this forums for months.
