FPR mod with BB, how's it working for you?

If you're running the fpr mod with a BB what kind of pressure did you end up with? Anyone problems? Can't do a search because FPR is too short so I need some input...

I love the FPR shim mod, when running the 10k it smooths out the jumps and jerks for really good driving manners, and the 5.6k is like the 10k without it. IDK about actual psi(no gauges), but I heard stock is about 55, and the mod is around 70. The only complaint is that it kills my milage(18 down to 16 with 10K), but there's more power
Alone you really don't notice it.

Hopefully someone will chime in who actually knows what they're talking about, and not just me.

I think he means a bb as in bb gun ammo. Fpr is fuel pressure regulator. Doing this mod makes the spring pressure stonger inside the regulator in turn making more pressure. Not exactly sure of the pressure amounts but the 55 ganing up to 70 sounds right.
