I also think that if you put the whole setup in a fridge (like i did) that also affects the gauge and the regulator. I usually just go by what the gauge says... i havent seen a noticable difference +/- whatever the gauge is saying.
As for the faster pours... why? I enjoy watching my beer fill up the glass.
And for the "foam" or head i'd make sure you dont have any leaks or kinks in the line. I had a faulty keg ball lock on my keg the plastic pin that pushes the ball down was bent or chiped or soething that allowed just enough air in to cause havoc on a steady flow... be careful when your pushing those in they should go on nice and easy if your using any real force then it isnt lined up.
