New fuel pressure regulator running high 40 to 50 psi

Can i expect any problems?
Will this cause anyissues
It is new and measures 40 at idle and 50 psi with the vacume line unplugged.
I am running a stroker so some extra fuel is needed.
4.5 stroker in a 91 yj. with 24# injectors. mild cam. hi flow everything, borla header, 1 range cooler spark plugs, msd high energy stock replacement coil and larger wires 7mm i think. No sensor mods.
Any help would be very appriciated.

I have a 4.6 liter stroker in my XJ and your regulator is a bit high pressure. I got an adjustable regulator from Hesco for mine.

Thanks
I guess i wont worry about it.
I suspect it won't cause any problems.
The adjustable ones are expensive???

If you are looking for stock pressure, can't you just get a replacement stock regulator?

Stock pressure is not enough for 24 lb/hr injectors and 4.6 liter displacement. Your engine will be running rich with the setup you have now.

Running lean

I am running a stroker 4.5L so i need a little more pressure.
It was ordered as a stock regulator.
I think i need about 3 to 5 more psi than stock, and now have 5 over what i think i need.
I would think the o2 sensor would shorten the injector cycle to make 14. 7 AFR.
Also i am lean now 14.5 to 15.1 WOT
Which is another reason i am trying to get more fuel into it.
Running out of options.
Been thinking about an o2 sensor adjuster.
My nox is around 375ppm.
It was 513 before i put in a clooler plug to pass smog.
Might try a wider gap on my plug to retard timing a bit.
Might have that one backwards.
Thanks for your input.
