Right

Wrong

The higher fuel pressure is used to offset the higher manifold pressure, so the pressure delta from rail to manifold (the thing that controls fuel flow rate) stays the same at ~43 psi.

Higher boost does mean higher rail pressure, but that does not mean you swing rich. The entire point of the FPR is to keep the rail-manifold delta the same, so your fuel flow rate DOESN'T change with changing manifold pressure.

The OP's problem could have been caused by many things...if the injectors hadn't been tuned for then that's #1 on the radar. If the injectors had been tuned for then like alex said, it was probably a leak or bad MAF scaling.
