That port will indicate the operating pressure (usually 300-350ish). It's the same pressure you'd see if you had a guage on your inline reg.
I personally prefer having a guage under the front block over having one on the reg. It's good to have one or the the other.
Ideally I'd go with a 0-600 guage but have used a 0-800. I'd avoid anything lower as it would be easy to blow out the guage if there was a problem with your reg.
Also, if you have a 15' ASA you need a gauge with an offset port. MacDev offers an offset guage that works. It does have to be installed with either the front block removed or the ASA removed.
