    Okay guys I need a clear opinion.
    I am buying a high flow TBI from ExtremeFI.
    Its the 46mm 590 CFM unit for 199.99.
    I am also going to buy an Adjustable Fuel pressure regulator.
    They have an adjustable one for 39.99 or a vaccum referenced adjustable one for 59.99?
    Is the vaccum referenced worth the extra 20 bucks?
    I am leaning towards it but never really saw a clear comparision on this site as to which is really the best one to get.

    Thanks

    Tim

    If you do a search you'll find plenty on this. It's been covered quite recently. I've got a Jet adjustable one but I'll be changing soon to a vaccuum referenced one because of what I've read on here!
    Have you got a link to the one you're thinking of buying?

    link

    here is a link to the web site of the place that sells the Vaccum referenced unit.
    web site
    I looked thru his ebay auctions, but the Vaccum referenced adjustable fuel pressure regulator was not listed. So I emailed him. He is going to set up an auction for me so I can buy one from him. I already bought the TBI and it is on its way.

    Thanks for the link. I'd be interested to hear what difference the throttle body makes.
