You're wasting your time doing this. The increased fuel pressure will cause the mixture to be richer than it should be. The ECU will see this richer mixture during part throttle (via the O2 sensors) and lean it back out over time with the lambda adaption. The end result will be the EXACT same mixture as running the PROPER 3.5bar regulator.
