Next Fix, Need help

I have just replaced my oil cooler, installed a egr delete, flushed my coolant, and installed a coolant filter. I feel like i am getting close to the 6.0 of my dreams haha. What should i adress next? From what i have read fuel pressure should be my next project. Would a regulator spring solve the issue? Where should i get one?

Get the kit from Ford. It is the blue spring. Yes it should do the trick, but without gauges, you will not know. The kit # is 3C3Z-9T517-AG.

Truthfully, not very. No change at all, Gain zero.

Instead of the $52 3C3Z-9T517-AG number for the updated fuel pressure regulator spring, order the cheaper 6E7Z-9C165-B which is a different kit, but it still comes with everything you need (minus the cover you don't need) for somewhere around 38 bucks.


Oh, and, one question. Got gauges on there yet?
Check the link in my sig for "basic info for the 6.0 owner" for a good explanation.

Theres an electronic gauge set that is not all that expensive and is a very capable piece.
The scangauge2 can access all the factory PID's and is useful with some diagnosis. For a scant $165, it is tough to beat at the price.
If you just can't swing it yet, keep it in mind. You can get it at most auto parts stores.

I misread your question bud, i thought you were asking if I had a fuel pressure gauge, I do have an SCT Livewire with EGT kit.

NYC, I cannot find the kit without the housing on Tousleys website... Also would you recommend doing a spring before fuel pressure gauge? I cant afford the gauge right now.
