For a while now I've been contemplating buying an adju' regulator. But I'm
kind of unsure really. Not to sound like a dumb ass but it well known that
as pressure goes up volume goes down. so How exactly does the regulator help
add HP. The only thing I can guess is that it atomizes the fuel better for
better fuel/air mixture. Can someone let me know if I'm right. Or if not how
the hell these thing help and how tknow what to set it at
The only reason that the volume would go down with added pressure is
if you reduce the orifice size. The idea of increasing the fuel
pressure to the fuel manifold is to allow more fuel through the
injectors. I don't think that it is recommended unless you are
upgrading other things in the engine compartment. Changing cam,
throttle body, headers, exhaust can be the reasons. Do some research
on fuel injection, there's plenty of things that you should know
before just adding parts.
Actually that is not quite right. Increase the velocity and the
pressure exerted on the walls of the hose/pipe will drop.
If you increase the fuel pump pressure, it will increase the amount
(volume) of fuel you are to putting through the hose in a given period
of time. This increases the amount of fuel going into the cylinder
per cycle. More fuel in the cylinder = more fuel burned=more power.
More fuel burned does not mean more power unless you also get more
oxygen into there to balance things out. IIRC around 14.7 to 1 used to
be the mixture level you were shooting for. If you just increase the
amount of fuel, and don't increase the oxygen, it will just burn rich
and waste fuel.

If it were burning so slowly as you imply it would be going out in the
exhaust cycle. Which would pretty much make it UNBURNT fuel. So
again I say, if it's getting burned in the combustion chambers, it's
making pretty much making power. The only question is can you get
enough air in to match the amount of fuel. If it burns then the
answer is yes, you can. If not, then not all the fuel gets burned.
Why is this so hard?
I'll concede that point, but my point is still valid. Just making more
fuel flow into the engine does not create more fuel burned making more
power unless you also increase the amount of oxygen. That is why NO2
makes more power so easily, since it provides a lot more oxy for the
volume (not to mention the added power just from the denser air charge
