Shimming the regulator???

I was reading some post on TDG and a guy was talking about shimming his regulator and getting more fuel pressure. He said he shimed it with a bb, like out of a bb gun. I have my cab off for studs and alot of other goodies and I am installing a RR kit on my truck while it is off and more pressure sounds great to me. What is this shimming he is talking about? How do you do it? It can't be done easier than it will be now, cause I can see everything with the cab up. Thanks!

Why is it not woth it? I have never heard of this before no so I didnt figure it was a great mod! Do you think a RR kit will be able to keep up with my X-Race tune?

You can, and I did it on a 6.0 and it did help but I have a RR on order and I think a RR does the job for you

If you are installing a RR kit then most of them eliminate the factory regulator in the filter housing on top of the motor. No need to shim it if it is removed.
