Thanks! Unfortunately, I had to sell the 4th gen to buy the 5th gen. Oh well, it was a great choice in my mind!

Here is a link to the fitting info:
http://www.holley.com/991401ERL.asp
Summit and Jegs both stock Earl's.

Here's a link to the gauge:
http://www.autometer.com/cat_gaugede...earch&gid=2808
Also available at Summit and Jegs.

Actually, if there's room, you could screw the gauge directly into the hole on the Magnuson fuel block. The inlet of the Autometer gauge is 1/8" NPT.

I have the plug. I took it out to match the theads, but the schrader type valve that goes on it is what the fuel pressure gauge hooks to. I have a new gauge, but need the valve to fit it to. Just the valve. Not the whole braket.
From your misfortunes we all learn a valuable lesson. Thanks for being our CAMARO5 martyr...

You can save money buying used but be prepared to order stuff. If your set-up is far from stock, have a way to get the car to the tuners. Find a tuner in advance.

I'll still have saved about 900.00 but what a pain.

Read this whole entire thread starting from post 1 and just finished (2 hours). PQ seems to have the worst luck dating all the way back to when he first got the car and he had to do a fuse pull from running low octane gas

Are they working on the tune as we speak?

Yeah, but his misadventures are never boring and always educational with a smattering of humor thrown in. This site wouldn't be what it is without PQ!

I am spending the day today pounding the pavement to find a tuner here. If I can't, I'll have to go somewhere.

I really ain't this big of a trainwreck.

This stuff is just all new to me. I should have had a tuner already. The plan was to get it going with the maggie tune and drive it till I found a tuner.

google "tis2web"

then click on the first link in the list.

Should work then.
