This is a connector on one of my DOHC 16V engines. I wanna call it a "fuel pressure inspection connector", where you can quickly screw on a pressure gauge to check the fuel pressure. It screws into the fuel rail with an M10x1 thread as it looks like, and has a cap to screw on it for protection (not shown in the picture).
Does anybody know where to get one of these in the States? I have searched Summit Racing, but I might be struggling with the right search term.

Very similar to a refrigerant tap I use in my line of work

Fuel test port cap is what you need, (low side, blue) A/C cap may work. Newer A/C caps (R134) are larger and will not fit. The older (R12) black (may be blue) caps is what you would look for.
If you can find a evap. system test cap (green and on most late model gas cars and trucks) I think it may work best for you because it's fuel rated.
Most auto parts stores should have these. HTH

Nope... those are just AN fittings.

GV... do you need the exact replacement? Or for another application? FWIW... Pegaus Racing carries a variety that are approved for SCCA racing.

Looking to replace a missing original fitting. Doesn't have to be the original part. In doubt, I just have to put a M10x1 plug (screw) in it to close it off.

I see why your having a struggle finding something, I have tried wording several different ways and included m10 in some of my searches as well.
Seems strange that it is this difficult?
I would think this would be a reasonably easier part to find than it has been.
I've searched for at least an hour and a half.
That's why I shared the one I did find ( above) Thinking worse case scenario an adaptor from the m10/thread to this may work
Hind sight, finding the adaptor may prove to be equally as challenging I guess
