    I picked up a water pressure gauge at home depot or lowes for 20 bucks and put it on a water temp port on the intake manifold. works great.

    mech. auto meter in dash with a braided line to the tstat cover on the manifold. has alerted me to a clogged pump on several occasions. very valuable tool.

    x2, water well pressure tank gauges work great and all home repair stores should have em.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Got mine at Grainger. They have a pretty good selection for size and mount style. This is the one I have screwed into my intake.

    Contrary to the pic show on the site it has the numbers on the face like this one.
