fuel regulator???????????

O.K. who has shimmed they're fuel regulator and how do you like it and how hard is to do? does it make a big differance? if anyone has any pics can we see them. with the fuel price on the rise again we need to do as much as possible. I hear oil is gonna be 100.00+ a barrell and we could be pretty close to $5.00 a gallon. thats what I'm hearing anyway.

I did the shim and like Willy said it was only a little difference. If you want a big difference go with the ITP regulated return or something similar. That made a big difference in MPG and efficiency for me. Plus it is alot easier to tune the fuel pressure.

I did not see any MPG difference with the shim. With the return system and some other mods (before my newest ones) is was seeing 500+ miles on a tank (usually 32 gallon on fill up) so about 16 MPG +/-.

The regulated return fro ITP would be the best bet for you.

I get 600+ out of a full tank, my tank is 38gal
