If you do anything w/ that Fuel Pressure Regulator, then get the GP Sorenson TBI rebuild kit, it comes with the Regulator as well as the other stuff for the TBI and will cost about the same as the Regulator by itself.
But as Murdog pointed out, it is on the back side of the TBI.
You remove the 8 star tip'd screws and you can pull out the unit as a whole.
The Regulator is on the underside, held in place by 4 star tip'd screws, and has a spring in it, so be careful taking those screws out. ;)
Scroll down this page::
There is the information packaged w/ the Sorenson kit.
Numbers 12, 11, and 10 are the Regulator assembly.
It is attached to the underside of the Fuel Meter Assembly

Hey guys i sell auto parts and what i run into is that the quality of some fuel pumps and modules just arent the same ac the factory ac/delco ones. So when replacing your fuel pumps go with the factory one because i sold alot of cheap ones and nothing but problems. So just remember it wont hurt to spend the extra dollar is saves you in the long run!!! Good luck gents

Here is an even better How To on the TBI 220 (300), and the Fuel Pressure Regulator.
The picutres and diagrams bounce between the TBI 220 and the TBI 300, the only difference is the 220 has 2 injectors and the 300 has only 1 injector.
Other than that they are pretty identical.
