:idea: If I am planning on getting a after market ECU, would it be a waste of money getting an adjustable fuel pressure regulator. Would'nt they beable to program around the standard one, or is there more to it than that :?:

The adjustable fuel pressure regulator will allow you to get your tune far better than without it - getting you correct stoicometric ratio is one of the best ways to pull power out of the Windsor which is normally a little rich. Your motor combination would definately warrant the $200 investment

With an aftermarket computer no you won't need the adjustable reg but it sometimes comes in handy while tuning.
