Exclamation Is this right?!

At idle fuel pressure bounces between 40-60 psi.

At 2500 rpms sitting in the driveway it falls flat to about 20 psi.

Is that right?

That is NOT right.

Fill out your sig so we know what your working with. (IE- OBS fuel Pressure is different then the SD.)

nope thats not right , it actually should climb , it will bounce just because of the manual pump, but on accel should gain pressure , under load up to 100 or so , either your pump is weak or the regulator is letting it drop, there has been problems with the screen in the side of the filter housing getting clogged , remove the 2 10mm bolts out of the side ,and clean that screen

OK stock on the OBS is 40 to 70 PSI.

As you accelerate the pressure should go up to the higher numbers. One of the modifications is to "shim" your fuel pressure regulator. This raises the idel pressure so you get better pedel responce.

Some where in the system is a screen that may be dirty. But I'm not sure on it's location.

OK pulled the screen, dirty as sin, screen was actually "unattached" from the little plastic holder it's attached to.

Edit,

Ford has it part# F6P29150BA $81 here where I live

Do you think it would be alright to run without that little screen? The fuel just goes right into the filter bowl from there, and the filter should catch any crap.

Yep I figured that so I just put all back together. Still have the same problem although pressure is not dropping quite as much now.

60 at idle 30 at WOT. Guess it's time to pull the fuel pump.
