    Those power boost regulators have one use, and that's if you bolted a turbo on, and can't be bothered getting it mapped, or getting the bigger injectors you need, so it'll boost the fuel delivery by bumping up the fuel pressure.

    if set to a mild degree, the ecu will realise the injectors are putting in too much fuel, and they'll adapt and back the fueling off.
    If it puts in a lot of fuel, the ECU will throw a strop that it can't get the correct amount of fuel.

    Best left for the turbo cars really, and even then, they drink the fuel like it's free.
