It's under the upper intake manifold I posted the instruction's on how to replace it and a diagram showing it on the engine.

1. Relieve the fuel pressure.

3. Disconnect the vacuum line.

4. Remove the fuel pressure regulator and the screws.

O Discard the return seal and the O-rings.

INSTALLATION

CAUTION: Do not smoke or carry lighted tobacco or open flame of any type when working on or near any fuel related components. Highly flammable vapors are always present and may ignite. Failure to follow these instructions will result in personal injury.

1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.

O Lubricate the fuel pressure regulator O-ring seals with clean engine oil, XO-10W30-QSP or DSP or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESE-M2C-153-E, to aid installation.
