Injector Pressure

I am wondering if anyone can help me out with Fuel Pressure, read an article about not letting the FP drop below 45psi, I put in a guage- FP was at 52psi idle and 47 WOT, I found GDS who had the aftermarket springs for the regulator, changed it and now I'm running 100 psi at idle and about 68psi WOT. My concern is that this is too much pressure, does any know the specs on a stock injector?

Whoa, those numbers are way high. 75 PSI Max, 45 PSI Minimum.

That is very high for fuel pressure to the injectors.


Another thing to point out is that you have a difference of 42PSI..... that is a large drop.

too much FP and you blow the O-rings on the injectors, then you have a mess on your hands. big drop just shows where the limits of the rest of the systems are. prob reached max flow rate for the fuel pump. personally the 68 is high but not that high, the 100 is gonna cause problems pretty soon though.

That spring is really intended for the 7.3 not the 6.0. Get it out of there before you have to buy new injectors. Get the updated Ford Kit.
