Just installed a pressure gauge. My pressures are 50-51 at idle and normal driving. 41-42 AT WOT. Am I ok ok with this or should I be looking at a blue spring?
Thanks

Definitely get the upgrade. Those pressures aren't safe IMO. Mine are 63 at idle and 59-60 at WOT.

Since you have a gauge installed and know your psi, you can try the "BB mod". It's free, you install a "BB" between the spring and poppet.

"BB mod"- use a .177 caliber "BB" from a air gun (daisy, crossman).


ONLY TRY THIS MOD IF YOU HAVE A FUEL PSI GAUGE!!!

Could always get the Gillette spring if you want lots of pressure. The HOLY CRAP kind LOL
