Not to nit pick, but NA is naturally aspirated. Now, with that out of the way. I believe it'* welded to your fuel rail. If that'* the case you will need to pull the fuel rail and replace it. And that'* a easy process.

Disconnect neg bat cable
Depressuerize fuel rail
disconnect fuel lines
unplug injectors
remove vacuum line.
remove injector clips
remove 4 nuts holding fuel rail down.
Blow area around injectors clean
Wiggle fuel rail loose, might take some effort
install new fuel rail in reverse order.


I think that should be it. Check for leaks

Thanks for the correction on the proper vernacular. Looks like my vehicle has a snap ring holding the regulator in place so I am going to take a shot at that 1st. If the entire fuel rail needs to come out I agree that is an easy process.

Thank you for the assist.
