5/16 inline fuel pressure gauge adapter?

Anyone know where to get a one peice adapter like this? Basically a T with two 5/16" fuel line barbs and 1/8 npt female threads as the middle connection?

I know I could peice it together from parts but I would like one unit if anyone makes it.

Thanks

i didnt search much but i never found a 5/16's one.

I ended up getting a MR. Gasket 3/8's and grinding the barbs down a little bit and worked like a charmp after forcing the hose on.

then i dumped all that and changed my whole fuel set up to -6.

If your interested in it.. 20 shipped including the gauge.. its just sitting around now. PM me.

I just did the same thing for a customer's car, used the 3/8" and grinded the flares down a little, then lubed the shit out of the hoses. It's janky, but the clamps hold it fine. If using OE hoses they're actually 8MM, so an aftrmarket piece of 5/16" fits a little better. I plan to replace it all next time I have the car on hand.
On my own car I have a Greddy sender so it's 1/8" BPST, I was able to piece it together with Earl's fittings, a 1/8" T then two 1/8" to a hose barb fittings, but those three alone were like $30.

^^^ That's the one I have in my garage... waiting to go on the car. It's more than worth the $15.
