It ain't normal to see a climb.

However, running at 75psi isn't going to pose much of a problem as long as that is your pressure at idle, and it goes down as you are driving. 75psi is the upper limit for the injectors, at which point they start leaking by the O-rings into the oil lines. The injector bodies are tested much higher than that, however, excessive wear and failures may result.

Have you already changed the filter?

He stated He changed the filters
I agree it's not at an alarming High PSI ,, but the climbing is a concern ,, the only reason for that in my mind would be a return issue , or a regulator problem

I would disassemble the fpr, and check for misalignment and trash.

I would suspect maybe a misinstall of the regulator or something sticking in that regulator assembly while some increase is understandable, system reaching equalibrium etc, this continual climb is indeed not normal. When u checked the HCFM did u check it's
pressure regulator? Was there any extra parts left over in the spring kit?
