You guys have to remember that the area under the rubber diaphragm in the WG housing multiplies the pressure of 1 bar to get force to open the valve. If you look at the cross sectional area of the the WG housing, multiply that by 1 bar and that gives you a ruff idea of the actual spring preload you need to overcome to open the valve. Alot more than 14.5 lbs.
The best solution is to order a new 0.7 or 0.8 bar spring to be sure.
Make sure you run a boost gage in the clock hole tee'd into the brake booster for accuracy. Tach gage is useless.
