low fuel pressure

hey guys,

Here lately my fuel pressure is getting low at idle and hard acceleration, im thinking my factory fuel pump is getting weak.

I have the blue spring mod and my fuel filters have only about 5k on them, thats what leads to think my factory pump is getting weak.

What are your guys thoughs. My fuel pressure is between 62-64 and use to hold strong at 68 at idle

Thanks for the help guys Brad

It sounds like the pump is on it's way out but I could also be that the fuel filters are getting clogged. I would replace the filters first before doing the pump.

I would say replace it. Better to replace the pump now than replace injectors later. Don't get an AirDog 2
