It's one spring in the fuel pressure regulator/upper filter housing. Currently w.o the blue spring you can have dangerously low fuel pressure at WOT. This spring will maintain a higher fuel pressure thus minimizing the potential for damaged injectors. It's one of those in case mods... Buy it from tousley parts.

I would recommend swapping springs. I went with the gillette spring instead of the blue spring

mine came off pretty easy the other day when I put in my blue spring. I had more trouble with the intake tube.

It's been proven on a dyno that as fuel pressure gets above 60 psi the HP drops slightly. I gave my Gillette spring and its 100+ psi to a buddy and within a year he was getting fuel in his coolant. Was it the Gillette spring that did it I'm not 100% sure but it was the only mod he did on his babied truck.

Was it a cracked head or injector cup?
