Gillete fuel pressure spring

So I bought one of these springs and put it in then ended up taking it out. Because it sounded like my fuel pump was working harder. I now have a riffraff FPX lines. Is any one using one of these. I have not checked my fuel pressure so I don't know where it's at. Is there a cheaper way to check it other than buying the gauge set up. Should I put it in and run it without checking where my fuel pressure is?

you can rig up an el cheapo to give an idea wherethe f/p is.

200psi liquid filled gauge from Harbor freight (5 buks)

18" grease gun flexible hose (3 buks)

Now, you gotta go to a hydraulic store and ask for a #4orb(male) X 1/8npt(female)

Not only will it check f/p, but you can mount it to the allen plug on top of the hpop resivoir and check oil psi..

The #4orb, will thread into the fuel bowl. There's 2-ports with plugs in them. The pass side is post filter, seeing psi what the injectors sees, driv side is pre-filter...

Thanks that sounds better than spending 200 on a gauge set up for now. Then I can figure out which spring I need. If I need one at all.
