FPR mod gone bad, need help asap!

did the fpr mod. The same one from that link that has the pictures along with the directions. where you stick the screw in the spring than put the cover back on. Anyway, did that and made the screw the right size 3/16 and everything. Start the truck up and it has the worst idle I have ever heard, crazy rattling, shaking, knocking, missing? I don't know what missing sounds like but I think maybe that is what is going on. Well I start driving down my road and I can tell something isn't right, it has no power, I can floor the pedal and it barely gives it gas, seems like it isn't getting the fuel it needs. So I put everything back to normal, and it is still doing it, it is even worse, I had to leave my truck at the bottom of the hill because it won't make it up. This really sucks, the truck was running perfectly before I did any of this. Sorry for the long thread but I need help!

mine sounds like that but worse. It is getting worse too, I can floor it at it just stays bogged, this is while it is parked, it won't even drive at this point.

sounds to me like a pluged fuel filter or screen in the tank have you change your filter lately maybe you had a bunch of crud in there and the higher pressure did it in

I, was thinking the same thing, I really hope that is what the problem is. I was trying to unscrew the cap but my hands were all greasy from fuel and it started raining. It is pouring down rain right now and it is a five minute walk to the truck, so I'm gonna wait till it lets up. I really hope that is what it is, I wish I hadn't even touched anything, it was running so nice before. But always gotta improve performance, I'm getting the bug and it just bit me in the a$$
