Replacement Mk1 fuel pump (FPE-273) gives too much pressure.

Has anyone replaced their Mk1 fuel pump with the' Fuelmiser FPE-273' pump and found problems with the delivery pressure of fuel now being too high?

Since replacing mine some time back I noticed fuel consumption dropped a little and there were random idling/stalling issues when lowish manifold vacuum clashed with a higher than normal fuel pressure and flooded the engine.

Tests confirm the delivery pressure is clearly higher than spec. The condition is liveable but I'd like the readings to be normal.

Is the more expensive 'Goss GE192' a more reliable pump for this car and would I expect normal readings if I swapped the FPE-273 with it?
