Not that I'm aware of. It just gives you better fuel pressure resulting in a smoother idle. More oil going to injectors = smoke

Shouldnt....

on a side note....dont just shim it without checking actual fuel pressure....too much pressure is a bad thing too.....

if you bump it up just a bit it will improve idle and throttle responce.....bump it up too much and you will take your fuel pump out though...
