I just helped my buddy do this on his 6.0. I ordered it from here: Riffraff Diesel: Ford Fuel Pressure Regulator Blue Spring Kit

I picked up mine from my local dealer. Showed them the price on Tousley and they matched it. If you take them the part number, they'll be able to find it that way.

Installed Blue Spring last weekend and can tell a difference right away. Don't have to mash on gas pedal as hard, and at WOT you really notice a difference. Also before when you got into it just a small amount of black smoke came out. Not the case now..... Can't wait till summer months ta blast some folks with their tops down on their BMWs.

I just hooked up my fuel pressure EAS on my EDGE and found that I'm at 47 psi at idle, so I'm going to install the blue spring kit. How long did it take you to do? What was your fuel PSI before the blue spring install?

The Ford part # is
3C3Z-9T517-AG
Ford refers to this part as a Regulator Kit
Bought mine from Tousley Ford, Inc for 52.80 + 10.00 shipping (to St. Louis Mo)
Takes about an hour to install not difficult at all.
Any issues just send me a message.
