Exactly where is the fuel pressure regulator

Resolved Question:

''99 Suburban K1500 5.7L
I have looked at Chilton''s manuals, and talked to "people in the know" at the parts stores, and the only answer that I am getting is that it is on the fuel rail. There isn''t a fuel rail. I have spent over an hour digging around my intake looking for something that looks like the parts pictured (3 different styles) and found nothing.

Hello and welcome to Just answer

The fuel pressure regulator is located under the upper air intake plenum mounted to the injector body assembly.
