To install them, you'll have to take out 3 hex bolts from underneath, you'll probably have to take the upper intake off so you can get the fuel rail up enough to get to them unless you want to wrestle with them. Just 3 hex bolts. The vacuum line is the one connecting to the top of it and that comes from the underside of the upper intake.
The schrader valve is on the chrome rail, right behind the alternator. You take that valve out and then you can connect a gauge to it. But, there's two different materials gauges are made of, brass and stainless steel. Brass is ok for checking the pressure and removing it afterwards, if you intend on leaving the gauge there permanently, you'll need the stainless. Brass can't handle the constant pressure.
You can get a regulator just about anywhere that sells Mustang parts like Summit, Jegs, the numerous suppliers in Mustang magazines, or check out our website sponsors like MCR Parts on the right side of the screen.
