Your fuel pump will cycle and pressurize the system. Then just let it sit lime that for awhile. Mine would drop down to like 10psi in about 15 minutes.
Was able to read the pressure from my pro torque and when I tried 15 min later my app wouldn't link up or green highlight the pressure again. Its always something technical for Gods sake plus its too darn hot out. I'll try tomorrow but thanks for your time
