You don't REALLY need to use anything more then the actual spring.... So if you did that's great, but you don't need to worry about that peice

I did the blue spring update two weeks ago, I used everything, I had one oring left and realized where it went and got it right. All the old seals were hard and worn, glad I changed it all. The oring I almost missed was stuck on the hard black plastic piece, I had to oil the new one well and it was a tight fit. I have read alot of the post about how people don't use all the parts or cannot figure out where all the parts go, I just checked it over a second time. I hope those old parts continue to work for you.

I installed everything on mine and a fuel pressure gauge at the same time in the test port. Annoying because my presure fluctuates sporadically from 55-60 all the time.

I didn't use the little white plastic piece at the top, it wasn't there originally and wouldn't fit back on with my housing. Has been holding up fine for 10K miles...I didn't really understand the point of it.

Lol, I didn't understand the point of it either. It was under the old cap, I had a new cap and replaced it.

We are talking about the same thing right? That is if by "cap" you mean the regulator cover on the side of the filter housing.

The little white piece at the top under the regulator housing cover is an air bleeder orifice (see figure 53 on page 28 of the 6.0L Coffee Table Book, 2003.25 edition).
