If you want to just eliminate the regulator, block the factory return line, then when you have the time, delete it

I thought that i had read somewhere that someone said to delete the "poppet" and pull the filter out and then the regulater would be eliminated????

But i could be way off base???

Is blocking the return line the easiest way to do this in your opinion??

You can take the poppet and spring out if you really want to, it wont make a difference if the return is blocked off. If the return is blocked the regulator will be disabled, but I like taking the poppet and spring out when I put AD2's on, piece of mind thing

Taking the poppet and the spring out is certainly no problem but IMO totally unnecessary. All you need to do to disable the oem fpr is block off the return line and you're done.
