fuel pressure spring

I know ford released an updated fuel pressure spring for the 6.0. What years did this come factory on and what years need to be upgraded?

Unless you have a fuel pressure gauge, DO NOT USE the BB mod.

I believe the updated spring is needed for all years.

I agree. All years can benefit from this upgrade. Different years, same crappy spring.

Considering the cost of injectors, the spring upgrade is a very good investment. Just because you installed the spring, doesn't mean you should skip out on a fuel pressure gauge. You may never know when the HFCM gets weak, until it's too late.
