? For Those With Riffraff FRx

Which spring did you use and what is your actual fuel pressure?

I installed the gold spring and am only seeing 55 lbs, running. With the FRx bypassing the internal regulator on the fuel bowl, it makes sense to me the pressure would be lower but I just want to make sure. I'm trying to figure out if my fuel pump is on the way out, maybe (probably) screens in the tank are plugged, or if it is worth the effort to change out to the black spring. Thanks.

leave the spring in and run WOT runs while watching f/p gauge. See if it dips down. If so, to what #?

Hose on the gage won't reach to where I can see it while driving.

Replaced it with new when I rebuilt the fuel bowl.

Still interested in what others are getting for pressure at idle.
