Has anybody installed a stronger spring on the oil pump to raise the oil pressure? I removed the spring today and stretched it hoping it will raise the pressure. I want to say I got the pressure up by 2 pounds at idle so 11psi and 55psi at 3k RPM's. keep in mind this engine has 196k and I don't know the history of this engine. I found a stronger spring here Better spring. just wanted to see if anybody has done this yet?

The spring is an override in case the pressure gets too high. It does not control the normal operating pressure of the engine, only the maximum pressure the engine can get to.
