I would never mess with fuel pressure. Fuel rail design is very tricky thing. If you have seen how rails are tested you'll see that it look very much like an EKG with a pattern or rhythm if you will. These are fluctutations or pulses which reside in the design of the rail at a given pressure. Now then the dampeners are there to maintain nice, even and uniform. When people start changing fuel pressure that the rails were not designed for, this is where you start running into problems as those waves are not constant in terms of time or pressure. You start seeing changes which equate to odd paterns in fuel delivery. This is another reason aftermarket rails for the most part are worse than your OEM rail since they have in all likelihood never tested that rail like the OEM manufacturing companies have (these machines run over a million dollars to test these things).
