sounds like the fpr shim mod to me.......people on here get mixed results from it, but no real power from it i think.

You can get a BB or a part # 6592105 steel ball from a Bobcat Dealer for 10 cents that will do the same thing and put you at the perfect fuel pressure FWIW (which is not much). It's a pretty useless mod actually and remember........raising your fuel pressure does NOT insure that your are getting more flow from your pump. You could actually be getting LESS fuel by raising the pressure.

I tried it and the spring put the presure @ over 95 psi which is way to high so I would say its not good as the spring is way to stiff.
