Low fuel psi

Will low fuel pressure cause the truck to be slower since its not getting the right psi?

Yes, since it is not getting the correct volume. The minimum PSI ensure the injectors are filled, lubricated and cooled. Besides lower power, the largest problem is the overheating and wear in the injector if there is not enough fuel for the nozzles and plungers.

That's what I thought. I am about over Airdog.. On my 5th motor in a year. Not one of the motors has held the right psi. My truck only gets 40psi of fuel... Probably going to put my stock back on... Don't have the money to do anything else.
