Rough after blue spring

Ok so after I put the blue spring and banjo bolts in my trucks seems to be running a little weird. It kind of shakes a little more than usual and just seems to be a little rough. I'm hoping maybe I'm just being paranoid and nothing is wrong but if people have had this problem before please fill me in on a solution. Sorry for this post if someone else has already had this problem I have been looking and couldn't find anything. Thanks

did you put a fuel pressure gauge on it to see what you are actually getting?

You might want to do that. A lot of guys have had problems with the new little brass cup that comes with the kit being too tight and was only giving them like 50psi at idle. Once they switched it back to the factory brass cup they got 65-70 psi and everything was fine. Did you get the whole kit or just the spring?

I went with the whole kit. When I put in the little black cap and the new cup they went in fine wasn't hard to push in or anything.

After hearing this, is it safe to say that even if you get the whole blue spring kit, it might be worth using some of the original parts? Aside from obviously the spring and o-rings in kit.

Getting ready to do this myself and don't want to run into a lot of these issues

Well I drove around today and I'm thinking maybe I'm just paranoid. I do feel like my exhaust sounds like it has more air coming out of it. Sounds alittle more like a turbine. Idk though maybe I'm just crazy lol.

From what I have been told the best this to do is to ONLY replace the spring and the oring on the cover. A lot of guys have had pressure problems when they replace everything that comes with the kit. I, myself, used the whole kit with no problems. To each his own though.
