fuel problem?

Hey guys havent been on here in awhile but I need some help. My truck is doing fine except for a code coming up saying low fuel pressure on the rail. I had run across this awhile back it seemed to go away and now it is back. The truck doesn't stumble or sputter but I am wondering if the replacement plug I ordered for the fuel rail is the culprit? Any help u guys can provide would be appreciated

Did you shim the fuel rail? If not that could be your prob. If not say yourself from ahveing to replace the cp3 and get a fuel system. I just shimmed my rail and i havent thrown a code for any fuel issue yet but i might one day.

I didn't pull apart the original plug, I ordered one from kevin that I understood was ready to go I am thinking it may just be a replacement rail plug. I am going to have the original one shimmed and swap it out and see if it fixes it, I hope so because the other alternatives aren't cheap if something else is wrong. So send out a small prayer for me and the "Big Red Machine" will let ya know what I find out tomorrow.

ok found out the replacement plug i installed is a plug only not a relief valve therefore no ability to shim. I also found out the cp3 is just not able to keep up with what the mp8 can ask for so i down the level to about 50% I tried it out on half on the way home and had no issues just how it goes for my truck i guess.

Do you still have your oringinal plug? If so shim it and put it in. The MP-8 and power puck should be no diff. I can run mine on 100% and level 6 but i get worried sometimes so i back it off to bout 85-90%
