this mod is not realy a big advantage , the thing about these injectors in these engines is , its not pushing more pressure they need volume , there is a big difference in the two, 7.3 or 6.0 both a spring regulator , but throwing the pressure way up is not that beneficial

I would only do it if your idle fuel pressure is low. If you lose pressure under throttle your pump is weak. I had about 53 psi at idle and added a .177" BB between the regulator spring and brass cup and I'm at 62 psi idle now.

An AirDog provides much better results, but isn't nearly as cheap.
