Like the title says, which would be the best way to monitor fuel pressure? mechanical gauge or electronic. I'm not too keen on messing with an isolator and all that crap that comes with a mechanical gauge but it does give you real time pressure measurements. Just curious about the accuracy of the electronic ones. thoughts?

Bad part about a mech. is it has to go outside the truck. The few electronic gauges (autometer) I have been around are pretty accurate.

Electric. They are worth the extra money over the mechanical.

i have an electronic, its a cheapo MK1 off ebay, i didn't have the cash to spend to get the autometer to match the rest of my gauges, its only like 45$ shipped and comes with everything you need, lights up bright and overall is a awesome looking gauge, if you would like more info lemme know

I would go full sweep elec. I use the Phantom II's and they're pretty slick. Bought the billet bowl covers and hook up was a breeze..
