Default Choosing bov.. AFM removal, will it affect Idle vacuum reading?

As the topic says..

I want to buy a Tial BOV for my car, but im not really sure what spring to get when I buy it. I know the spring psi rating goes by your vacuum reading at idle.
Since im removing the AFM from my car, would that change the standard vacuum reading?

Heres the chart im looking at:

Would the 9psi spring be alright?

Your vacuum reading will stay the same.

IIARC the new BOVs come with all the springs.

I know the new wastegates come with all the springs. I hope the BOVs do too. I am placing my order next week for one.

I do not think the BOV's come with all the springs. I know mine did not. I think I went with the pink spring.
