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

i have the 1/8" fittings, the bb and the 200 psi guage and am in the garage ready to install. i have lost the video and don't know where at the fuel filter housing it is installed. call me 913-620-3288.
is it where the fuel line goes in at the driver's side of the fuel filter housing?

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...

okay that is what I heard but I have heard that if you bump it up to 73 to 75 you should still be fine... and Marc and glad to see you on here more often now... I have been a member for a while and haven't really ever seen you on here or talked to you before
