I used one and it is way to stiff has the fuel pressure pegged my 100 psi guage. ended up putting the original back in and streching it slightly works well now.

it is a waste of money , it does jack the pressure up , but in turn just makes fuel pump work harder , there is really no performance gain, with these injectors in these engine its not pressure increase that helps , its volume , there is a difference

Yes the higher pressure does make the pump work harder. The higher pressrue will decrease the flow because its trying to build more pressure with the stock fuel flow rate through the fuel paths. but it equals out. Just increasing pressure DOES NOT increase the FLOW with the SAME EXACT STOCK PUMP. You can do all you want but the effects are only going as great as the flow of the stock pump.

Just add a .177" BB between the spring and brass cup for a 7-10 psi gain.
