    I am going to be installing my turbo setup this summer. My fuel system is 450cc DSM injectors, walbro 255 lph intake pump, and uberdatat to run it. Should I replace my factory regulator with an aftermarket one?

    you don't need too, it isn't really going to be beneficial unless your looking at like 500+ hp.

    another reason other than 500 hp is if the stock ones dying ! other wise dont spend more money than you have to !

    never replace it unless your injectors require a higher pressure to work correctly. large Inj's like 1000-1500cc require like 60psi or more of rail pressure. dsm 450s, do not.
