91gsx I don't think that anything is wrong with the orifice. The orifice looks fine. The base of the regulator that you screw the orifice into is what I am guessing has machining flaws. I could be totally wrong though. Something is wrong with the regulator, I was just assuming it was that. If I took a picture of the base of the regulator you wouldn't be able to tell by looking at it.

Kooldino Can you take a pic of what you think is wrong with the orifice?

Well, it is supposed to push down on the hat to preload it, but it usually doesn't contact it until it's about halfway threaded in.

The part that you screw the orifice into.... The oem fuel pressure regulator boost source on the intake manifold.

I am just taking a shot in the dark & guessing that it may be machined too long & the orifice sits too high.

that's about right, maybe less than half way on mine to be accurate.... mine digs into the cap/hat literally. I haven't tightened the screw all the way either.

Fortunately yes... my evo is not my dd but it's killing me to not have it for all the events this weekend.

When you install everything in order there's absolutely no room to screw the adjustment screw in. The adjustment screw is actually digging into the hat on the top of the spring.... and i haven't tightened the adjustment screw all the way.

I sincerely believe that there's something wrong with the fpr. Unfortunately I do not know anyone else with a AEM unit that I could swap fpr with to test.
