VW diesel injectors are passive devices. The spring and shim inside the injector controls the opening pressure. Injection volume is controlled by the injector pump. In theory, if you reduced the opening pressure of the injector, there MAY be a slight increase in volume. Unless you are a diesel engine expert (I am not), you should probably stick with the stock injector specification and work with the pump to adjust the fuel delivery.
