Can anyone tell me where to find the pressure regulator?

    Hi,
    I am trying to install some fuel lines for the engine I am swapping in but I can't find the fuel pressure regulator. From the diagram in the book it looks like it is located on the rear drivers side of the engine but I don't see anything there that screams "regulator" at me. The engine is a 1999 454. If anyone has a picture of it or something similar, maybe a TBI/TPI 350/454 could you please post it? Or if you can describe where I can find this darn thing that would be helpful too.

    Thanks,

    Logan

    have you tried following your fuel line from about the door on up?

    Sorry I forgot to mention it was going into my 75 blazer so following the fuel lines for the old 350 won't help me at this point. I believe they connect at different spots.

    Thanks,

    Logan

    The fuel pressure regulator is located in the throttle body itself in the rear.

    on TBI it is a gold can on the back of the TB, between the fuel lines....

    I don't know where it is on the Vortec MPFI...just follow the fuel line from the tank...usually on FI systems that are stock, the reg is in the TB or fuel rail itself...

    Thanks
