Fuel pressure to high?

Ok had a long weekend did the following

Pgreensvt flushing procedure
New oil cooler
Egr delete
Stc fitting
Turbo infeed and drain tubes
Clean the heck out of my intake
New air filter and box mod to make it easier to remove
Sinister coolant filtration
Fuel pressure spring upgrade from reg kit
And fuel pressure gauge and pod

My fuel pressure reads 68 to 70 at idle is that to high?

Sorry for the long list just have to tell someone my wife doesn't want to hear anymore about the truck LOL.

Seems a little high, but I dont have the regulator spring upgrade. How much did that run at the dealership anyways?

It looks perfect to me. Some guys that have replaced the spring have reported that their pressure went up to 72psi at idle. It settles down in the following week or so. No worries.

Its fine. Look at it this way. Its a Ford part, not some aftermarket spring. It will settle down to 70 in a week or so. No problems.

And don't waist your breath talking to the wife about the truck..... your marriage will last longer I learned real quick to shut the fu.... And for christ sakes DON'T UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES tell her how much you really spent on the truck. That's worst than talking about it !

Yeah well figure I will do studs and gaskets if needed eventually. I only have 62k on it so figure after fixing the oil cooler and deleting the EGR that I have probably saved my stock gaskets for along time. I never lost any coolant or had any issues just my insight told me my oil cooler was bad which my wife didn't believe me but does now my ECT and EOT are never more than 8 degrees apart.


I pretty much just followed PgreenSVT's things to know about owning a 6.0.. Great write up.
