Blue spring up grade Vs Fuel regulator

Does the blue spring upgrade on the pump affect the fuel regulator?

I'm expecting you would have to re-adjust your fuel regulator after installing the blue spring upgrade correct?

The "blue spring" is an update to the fuel pressure regulator on the secondary fuel filter on top of the engine, the spring is the adjustment. Unless you're talking about updating something different, like a regulated return system, etc.

Yea on the secondary fuel filter, I'm asking about(maybe wrong name) the fuel regulator that makes sure all injectors/cylinders get equal amount fuel. Am I saying that right?

Will it need to be re-adjusted if I do this blue spring kit upgrade?

I believe he is referring to the adjustable blue spring kits out in the market. They pre-load the spring with an adjustable screw/nut which allows you to increase the pressure being applied to the spring. This is Sinister's version: https://sinisterdiesel.com/i-2408371...roke-6-0l.html

Before people start freaking out about it being a sinister product, it was just the first result when I searched.

Unless you have an aftermarket regulator housing (I believe Sinister makes one) there is no adjustment. The spring itself is what allows the higher pressure - assuming your fuel pump (on the frame rail) is in good working order. If I remember correctly the blue spring is slightly longer than the stock spring.

Yeah, that's what I was figuring. So I apparently attached a picture the same time you posted a link!

just going to add i would avoid sinister at all costs...
they are not what i would call a high quality or highly moral company.
the other thing is the blue spring is an actual ford fix to a known problem. there are a number of companies that ake a decent adjustable housing but all require the blue spring be included so...

I like mead
