FPR mod

I just found out about the FPR mod. Just wondering if they are any pros or cons. Also would it be harmful? I found this link but im not sure what would be better, the spring or BB. Thanks for any input. Ford Powerstroke Fuel Pressure Regulator Spring 7.3 FPR - eBay (item 300526839895 end time Feb-25-11 14:34:59 PST)

Well the link you posted shows that he has sold 2 of those springs.

I bought one, did you get the other?

I've got a fuel leak and will be opening up my whole fuel system and figured for the price of the spring, why not try it.

I bought it tonight (before finding this thread) and once I get it in I'll tell you what I think.

It smoothes out the idle if your old spring is weak also you could do an idm mod and its not hard to do i did mine myself and that helped with the throttle response and with the idle to

My truck has dropped codes for low fuel pressure, and I can't cruise at 45mph (it chuggs and acts like it's out of fuel) so I either go 60 or more, or 40 and less. Just keep my eyes pealed for the blue lights, LOL

I'm also replacing the fuel pump and putting all new o-rings on the whole system. I probably won't be able to vouch for any difference since I'm doing all this at the same time. But I'll tell what I can tell once it's all done and over with.

I didn't have any codes at 1st either.

My truck has been getting progressively worse, I like to wait till it's bad enough that I know EXACTLY what the problem is,

The fuel leak was my last straw, I can't have drips. Drips drive me nuts.

One of the big reasons for holding off on this problem was that I am saving up for a totally new duel electric fuel pump regulated return system
And I didn't want to waste money bandaging my truck.
Oh well, my truck is a daily driver and a my work truck at that! So I need it to be good to go.
