To increase (or rather maintain) fuel pressure at high fuel demand.
When at WOT you will use more fuel, pressure will drop. Using a higher pressure spring helps maintain the fuel pressure in the safe zone of 60-70psi

This is assuming your having a pressure issue.

It is NOT a performance mod.

Since I am rebuilding the fuel bowl and have the three springs to choose from, would it be best to use the 50psi or 60psi or 70psi?

The correct thing to do would be check your fuel pressure. Right now you could have anywhere from 40psi to 100+ psi. You dont know.

How do I check fuel pressure? I have a Edge Evolution on the way; will this show fuel pressure?

i had the same one or have rather and the highest spring it came with shot up over 100 psi as soon as i hit the key i run the middle one puts me right at 74psi but like stated before i wouldnt go chancing anything without a guage they sell a fuel bowl adapter that gets you to standard pipe thread then just screw in a guage or fuel pressure sending unit that will work with your monitor either way you will need the adapter i believe i got mine from the diesel orings site aswell

Fuel pressure is a performance modplus it removes air and vapor from the fuel for a better burn. For $10.00 fom Dave at DI you can put his kit on with an exturnal reg. so you can try it where ever you want in a split second. I've run from 2 to 150psi in mine you will see how it changes.
