Hey Guys! So im looking to buy an adjustable fuel pressure regulator for a Civic 98 EX (d16y8) but im having trouble finding the right one. I dont really know what is a good brand to go with. I was looking at AEM a little but i just cant seem to make a decision and i really want to go with the right one.
I will of course need a gauge but i'd like to run it to a pod inside my car...anyone have any suggestions on which ones would be good and which ones wouldnt?
thanks for the help! :D

AEM is a good brand, But in order to have a fuel pressure gauge inside of the car you'd have to run a line off the fuel regulator..and I think it'd create some problems. Especially since there will be pressurized fuel inside of the car in a plastic line. Aeromotive makes a FPR with a empty fitting for a gauge though.

yeah i was really interested in getting the aeromotive one, but i cant seem to find one for my year...i know its a little bit tricky to have it inside your car, especially if you get air bubbles in the line...it can really set the gauge off...but i guess i just want the option there if i decide to do it. thanks for the advice :D

Nothing wrong with AEM, but I would rather get an aeromotive regulator. as for a fuel pressure gauge, be sure to get an electronic one instead of a mechanical one. reason being is that if you get mechanical, then you have to run a fuel line to the gauge itself (doubt you want to risk a gas leak in your cabin). electronic will have a sensor that you put in the fuel system somewhere (like right on top of the fuel filter).

yeah the aeromotive is my personal choice too, but i cant seem to find the right one anywhere...
im thinking im just going to leave the gauge under the hood, its a little too much hassle to put it in the cabin. thanks for the help
