I finally got my fuel pressure gauge wired up last night to find 24-26 PSI at idle and while cruising. Only drops to maybe 23 when I get on it. This is measured from the fuel pressure port on the FASS itself.

Is the pressure at the VP44 lower because I'm measuring before the filters maybe? I'm worried its too high and may cause damage. :confused013:

FASS HD150, stock filters that came with it, lines that came with it, no kinks or tight bends in the lines, autometer electric gauge, with autometer snubber between sensor and the fass pump.

As long as its not going to hurt my newer rebuilt VP I'm fine with it that high.

I would say that you are pushing it and probably shortening the life for the FASS but in the "ok" zone... like mjd91 said... ie my Raptor is at 18 idle 15 cursing and maybe dip to 12 WOT then right back to 15 psi at 110 mph, 32 psi boost, and 950* egt's (sorry, was racing a Ford and won last night)
