I am willing to bet you got it in there good enough for it to run without an error code but not as good as the factory settings. It is adjustable maybe before you buy a new one for $325 you should micro adjust it. I think you should mark the rail in both directions and mount a pointer on the sensor. Adjust it left one notch and then test it. Adjust it right one notch. Until it runs really good. If it starts to throw code you know you did it wrong.

Good Luck with that.

From what I have heard, the press regulator is not adjustable.

Why do I ge the feeling that you guys are talking about two complete different things? HP pump and fuel rail...
