Fuel Pressure fluctuation

I noticed today that my fuel pressure is dropping about 10 psi under hard acceleration (runs fine) it normally stays at 60. I did the blue spring upgrade and changed my fuel filters about 6 monhs ago. Any ideas what could be causing this? Time to change filters?

The thing that bothers me is that it just started doing this, normally it would go down about 2 psi, not this huge swing.

Could be filter, pump or even your spring you just installed.

Not a big deal imo. How many miles on your filters? I prefer to change fuel filters every 10k.

In your opinion. I change oil every 10k so it makes it easier to change fuel filters every other time instead of keeping track of mileage just for the filters. The filters are cheap through ptp and im all about maintenance. Jmo.

I mean your not hurting anything but the intervals are at 15, 000 for fuel. I change my oil every 7, 500 so I just do my fuel filters every other oil change. Bpackstone just told be to exend my oil changes to 9, 000 so I might start doing my fuel filters early like you.

As long as I have been monitoring fuel psi it has dropped when I am on the hammer. I wouldn't sweat it as long as it doesn't dip into the 40s.
