I'd be happy having one under the hood in the engine bay but , left corner on top of the dash would work too . Another place is the VIC . Remove it , cut a plate , mount a few gauges if desired

is that the actual gauge? if it is a PSI gauge it's not enough. a 40 lb gauge would be suitable.

He's in Russia so I'm guessing that the gauge is in bar. In that case the gauge is a little big, fuel pressure is less than 3 bar so you lose some detail going all the way to 10. Bar seems to be more common in places not-USA. Off hand the only place I consistently see it in car stuff is in MAP sensors.

I think he is asking where he can tie into the fuel rail to put the sender. You have to put a T in the line someplace. I wouldn't even know where to start except for right where the line has the schrader valve. Gonna be some cutting involved with this one to get that sender in the line.
Why do you need a pressure gauge in the line? Are you running boost or is it stroked?
By the way, St. Peter is an amazing city. I spent a month there about 8 years ago. Can't wait to go back one day.

Right you are Polka. I saw somewhere where a guy took the Schrader valve out and drilled/tapped the fitting for a sender like the OPs. I don't think I would do that to my rail but I guess it works.

Sorry that is not what I wrote it attracts a sensor installation)))

I was told the fuel rail has a hole to check the pressure in the system?!
Whether there can be screwed into the sensor?

come to our city! We have very beautiful!

sports car sensor is screwed into the fuel rail, but they are not standard, and it has a regular place at the fuel pressure sensor

you would have to modify the fuel rail to get the sender in there. theres no factory provision for it. there is however a Schrader valve on the driver (i think) side that is used for pressure testing. maybe something could be improvised with that...

Indeed. You should* be able to unscrew the Schrader valve and install a "TEE" fitting that would allow you to mount the sensor. Most metric pipe threads and US pipe threads are close enough to be compatible.

I might be wrong, if I am please correct me.

Quick search on Google "fuel pressure gauge 5.9L" gave up this link posted by Vermiscus..

Adapter kit for sender to Schrader valve. Summit could most certainly help once the thread is identified on OP's sender. I assume it's a metric.

You need to identify the thread on your sending unit shown in picture above..
