I noticed when I pulled the cap off the rail that there was a valve, do I have to remove this valve to install a rail mounted gauge?

Thanks
Jim

Yes, it is the same thing that is in your tire valve stems.

Just a quick note - I would recommend carrying the Schraeder valve and tool in your glove box just in case your gauge ever fails on the road - I do the same just as a safety precaution......

is this the remote gauge with extension so you can mount it outside...or one of the cheapo ones that mounts just at end of fuel rail...I used to have a rail mounted one and instructions said to leave it in...the coupler actually pushed in the valve.(not very accurate) where as the windshield mount said to remove the valve...

It depends if your adapter has a pushpin or not. If you bought it as a kit from a Buick vendor I would say it's fine. If you made your own with parts from Grainger or ? then you will have to remove the schrader valve pin.

It was from Full Throttle, had to remove the valve..Don't think it's a cheapo from Mike L. It's installed with no leaks :yup:

nope he sells good stuff...but if you had a hood mounted or one with an extension on it you could make sure your fuel pressure increased with your boost..

Some valve stem caps have that tool on the other side.
