What I don't understand is: unless I need to adjust the baseline pressure to something other than stock (~45psi), how would an aftermarket FPR help.
In my case, whether the oem Bosch pump was bad or it's output inadequate, the move to the 044 corrected everything. Also, make sure that you are producing 14.2 volts to maximize injector output.
