FPR Shims

I am considering putting in a shim. What I would like to know is, if I increase my FP with either a BB, or using an allen head screw, will that cause any problems with my injectors? Any help is appreciatted..:burnout

I have been running a shim for almost a year with no problems. I have not heard of any problems caused by the shim, but that doesn't mean they have not happened.

If you use the #4 allan head bolt, the threads only need to be about 1/4" long and the head should be ground down to about 1/8"-3/32" to start. Then check pressure and grind thinner as needed.

Keep Strokin'

It raises your fuel pressure. In most trucks they idle smoother and have a quicker throttle response.

So is the FPR in the same place on a 99-03 PSD as it is on the OBS PSDs? I looked at the post on how to do it on the OBS, but I just glanced under my hood the other day and what I saw didn't resemble what was in the pictures.
