I don't think its worth it on a stock car. Increasing the fuel pressure on a stock engine will not make any HP. You pumping more fuel into your cylinders but you have the same amount of air entering the engine so you really will just be running your enging rich which doesn't really give you any HP. FPR aren't a good mod for a stock engine.

Honesetly, your best to save your money for awhile untill you can afford a swap or a diffrent car. Now, that was the voice of reason but when it comes to fuel regulators you can get a small gain but only if you are seeing a major change in performance that is causeing a shift in your A/F ratio.
