6.0 fueling issue

Hey guys ive always browsed the site but this is my first time posting. I have a 07' 250 with 217000 miles on it. Im constantly trying to squeeze more go out of it. I had a egr delete sitting at the house waiting on it the day I rolled her home. It had roughly 125000 miles when I bought it. The set up I ran for the long time was just a sct 3015 with the preloaded tunes. My list of mods now is sct ts with custom tunes, 6.4 banjo bolts, 5in exhaust, high idle, and core support was cut for better coldair flow. The blue spring was the last thing I did before I struck out on a 1900 mile trip from central fla to west texas. Im pulling a 5th wheel truck and trailer have a combined weight of a little over 21k. I did the trip a couple months ago before the blue spring was installed with no issue. This trip was a nightmare ipr went bad left me on the side of i75 over night. Lost 3 injectors total was able to limp to a rv park and get them changed out. I guess my question is could improperly installing the blue spring be causing my issues. My fuel milage has also gone to hell I was getting 13-16 pulling the camper on the last trip this trip was between 7-9 and im only getting 11.5 empty. Before I could achive low 20s as long as a kepted it below 75

Welcome. And Yes it could, although ive never heard of improper installation of the spring. Having bad fuel and/or oil pressure will eventually take out the injectors but it most likely wont be instantaneous. Whats ur fuel pressure at idle and wot?

Fuel pressure is one of the few gauges I dont have yet. Ive been trying not to drive my truck much right now(thank god for company trucks) planning to buy the proper spring kit with all new orings and gaskets and ive convinced myself I need a regulated return kit also because a turbo and injectors is in the near future once I get the fuel issue solved
