When I say"Spring" Tell me what you think 6.0L Motor Heads.

A pass customer of mine runs a Aftermarket store. Chips/exhaust you guys know th drill. But he said something that peeked my interest. Before I go home tonight and do this, I wanted to see if anyone else has.
So y'all know the problem with a stock 6.0L is the restricted fuel flow.
This customer(Friend) Has a warranty admin regional rep that is his wife's in-law.
Your probably thinking, WHAT DID HE SAY THAT PEEKED YOUR INTEREST.
Well I am one to exhaust all efforts before throwing money around. OK so here it is.
" You know Bryan this guy told me to get great power from a 6.0L all you have to do is" Remove the fuel filter(Motor/Top side) remove a hat under the pedestal take the spring out, Stretch it, And put it back in.
There is your fuel flow.

So to all you guy's who know more than me. Have you done this, And how'd it work.
Are there any Threads or write ups on this. I don't mind doing it tonight. But If I get 10 guys"Who know what there doing" say Bryan don't waste your time. I will mow the lawn instead.

So hit me 6.0L smartys or 7.3L
