It needs to be replaced its there to control the fuel pressure otherwise you have too much pressure at idle low engine load etc.I dont know why they just wouldnt replace it.

The FPR job is to maintain the fuel pressure at all times-being bypassed will only caused the engine to burn more fuel

Go back and have them replace it-so that you don't have to worry that something might go wrong-
