What fuel pressure does a Weber DGV like?

After being stranded in traffic --twice-- this week, I tracked down the problem to my Facet-esque rattlecube fuel pump, which is deciding not to move any fuel at random intervals. Still rattling, just not pumping any volume.

So, time to replace it....but what with? I don't want to overwhelm my DGV, but then I realized I don't know what would overwhelm a DGV.

Anyone know off the top of their head what fuel volume and pressure works best for a Weber?

I know there's other stuff I should really track down first: a blocked line, plugged filter, stuck float, etc...just planning ahead for the worst.

I have a Weber DGV installed. I happened to have a Holley Fuel Pressure Regulator on the car from when I had SUs. I didn't change its settings at all, so as is stated above, 2-3 psi works perfectly.
