stykthyn I'm running it right now with the stock FPR but there is lots of room for adjustment. The above items have been on my list for a long time to make the most of the set up I just havent gotten around to it.

Many people on this forum (as well as others) have done the injectors and TB swap with no issues, however. If I can get away with just doing those without having to spend extra money then I'll do that. I'm feeling like swapping the FPR may be a bad idea now lol.

Does anybody here have experience with doing a higher pressure FPR?
I can't verify the numbers but you are right about how injectors flow different at different PSI's.

When you set it up get gauge to messages fp and turn up your adjustable one or down as needed. I would kick it up a little bit but that is just me. If I break something I fix it.

stykthyn get the TB and injectors. IF you are going to go with a FPR buy an adjustable unit.

'95 2.5l need advice on upgrade.

Hey guys. I've been doing a lot of research on cheap mods to help my 4 banger run a bit better. I've found and am about to purchase Ford/Bosch 19lb injectors and a 4.0 throttle body off eBay. However, I read where some people also changed the fuel pressure regulator to one off a mid 90's Chrysler vehicle. Apparently the FPR off those has higher pressure (41-49 psi I believe) than the stock FPR. Do you think this is a necessary upgrade? Or should I just swap the injectors and TB? I can get the FPR for about $20 new so I will get it if it helps. Thanks.
