another blue spring thread

hey guys, yesterday i ordered some tunes from gearhead performance and since i have a couple of days to wait i decided to install the blue fuel pressure spring and 6.4 banjo bolts last night. i started the truck last night to check for leaks but never drove anywhere, just left it in the garage. this morning i went about my normal routine (run out and start the truck and go back in to get ready for work) and as always i wait for the truck to get a little above 100 degrees ect before i move it. i was at about 120 ect when i left and i noticed the truck had alot more response while cold. i made it to work and the whole trip (maybe 8 miles) the truck seemed to work better. i dont know what my fuel psi was before the spring but i figured for the cost of the parts and the tunes coming it would be a good idea to have it in. i'll be buying a CTS soon as all i have now is a MSD dashawk which doesnt show my fuel psi, EGT, or FICM volts. does it sound like i had low pressure before the new spring? i'm thinking i must of.

hahaha, the placebo effect was the first thing that came to my mind. I figured there would be no difference in the way the truck would run after the new spring. more of a preventive maintenance before the tuner. but im sure the truck feels better, not a big difference but noticeable.

You have to expand it to read the egt too. I dont hink he was saying that thinking that it read them without upgrading. I think he was just saying it as general info.
