Low fuel pressure wooes....

So i decided to check my fuel pressure since i was asked by a friend to haul a 45ft race hauler for him the rest of the year. His old 12v got eaten up by the KDP. My truck has been running fine but this is a big trailer and has a lot of weight to it and since my scan gauge isnt here yet i figured i could at least check fuel pressure..

well fast forward i borrowed a fuel pressure gauge from the same guy found out my fuel pressure maxes out at about 39psi at WOT....

time to do a blue spring mod right. well dont have time to order one offline so i hit up the local International dealer hoping to score one for around 50 bux.. Not happening... FORD ONLY PART... )*@Y$)*#Y$)(#*@$Y)P*@()Q(#@*@&#$^.. not happy so i went to the ford dealers here in town(we have 3) all owned by the same family.

So i forked out 85 bux for the kit. not happy but i have awesome fuel pressure now so i guess its worth it..

Sorry for the rant
