Re: Fuel Pressure Regulator Location

No worries: Look to the upper-right of the master brake cylinder and you should notice a few lines coming through the firewall and around/along the strut tower. You should see a skinnier flexie line [evap line] and (2) beefy reinforced lines. These will be your fuel lines and confirm by identifying ...
