Default Fuel pressure gauge on fuel rail?

Is there a spot on the fuel rail to put a fuel pressure gauge, something along these lines? I had one on my old TBird with a 5.0 and thought it looked good. I just haven't seen a fitting on either fuel rail..

Just curious.
Thanks,
N

I would imagine you would either have to drill and tap one of the rails or install a fuel pressure block before the line goes into the rail.

Option1: Requires drilling and atapping fuel rail

Option2: Installation of fuel pressure block before rail - requires rerouting fuel lines.
