    crappy tools!!

    what a crappy day... So needed to verify fuel pressure on the black SVO

    Grabbed the fuel pressure gauge, plugged it into the rail, hit the key, and gas spewed out of the gauge.
    grrrr, hate crappy made tools, this wasn't a cheap gauge, think it was $65 at auto-parts place.

    Then I thought, I have that screw-on gauge on the Silver SVO. so I spin it off, and before as I look at it, notice it's stuck on 20 PSI, with no pressure.

    Anyone have any recommendations for a good quality fuel pressure gauge ?

    Eric, I've had a Hypertech gauge that I've used since about 1996 with no issues. They're not cheap, and I was leery buying something from Hypertech, given their product promotion issues, but it's been a good tool for me.

    I spent big $$ on a Mac tools gauge set years ago, but just like most Mac / Snap-on tools, it's never failed me.

    for some reason, I didn't think about MAC / Snap-on. Will check them out! Thanks Laredo.
