Performs Better than the Ford 7.3L Blue Spring Upgrade!!
Only takes minutes to replace!! Anyone can replace it!! Save money over kits trying to sell you extra parts instead of the main product!!
This Fuel Pressure Spring works on 1999-2003 Ford Powerstroke 7.3L models.
Ford released a statement verifying how the stock fuel pressure spring was not properly passing their pressure tests which could result in injector failure. Ford released their own Blue Spring upgrade, but still only managed to minorly increase the fuel pressure up. The EightySixd fuel pressure spring properly increases the fuel pressure. Fuel pressure can affect power, drivability and fuel mileage. The added fuel pressure will help keep the injectors from out flowing the stock fuel pump, meaning no air in the injectors, and an injector that will live much longer. Most trucks will actually quite down a little at idle, rev up a lot quicker and with the added fuel pressure, a little quicker spool up on the turbo.
EVERY Ford 7.3L needs to have the stock fuel pressure spring changed out so choose the best spring which is the EightySixd Fuel Pressure Spring.
The EightySixd Fuel Pressure Spring differs from the stock spring in two ways:
- #1 is Fuel Pressure Increase: Most Powerstroke's will see an increase of 10+ psi at idle.
- #2 is Increased Tension Lifespan: The stock spring loses about 25% of its spring tension in 10,000 cycles. The EightySixd spring loses about 1% to 3% of its spring tension in 1,000,000 cycles. Not bad for a low cost upgrade that can be installed in minutes!!
Installation Notes: Installation is simple and requires basic tools along with a T-27 torque bit. You simply remove the pump cover pieces and then remove the 2 x T-27 torque screws on the drivers side of the pump. Carefully separate the line from the pump and remove the spring (careful not to lose or damage the o-ring seal unless you are replacing it). Install the new spring making sure it seats properly and put it back together. It is very important to make sure the o-ring stays in its proper place.
This fix will permanently optimize fuel pressure the right way and prevent the need for trying to achieve the same results by using potentially damaging and leak-causing shimming of the weak stock spring.
