I need to replace the fuel regulator on my 2001 AU Falcon, Would someone be able to post up a picture of where it is located and what it looks like lol?

Also i was thinking of replacing it with an aftermarket unit, would something like this be suitable?
and would it be a streight swap?

should be sitting on the back of the fuel rail near the firewall. 2 10mm bolts in the back of it holding it on. found that those after market ones can restrict fuel flow and lower the pressure causing more issues than they are worth. they do look cool but other than that they are usless

im pretty sure the fuel regs on the AU rails cant be replaced, i know the regs on the E series can. i got a AU fuel rail and reg thinking i could swap the E series reg with the AU reg and the AU one dosnt come off. might have to consider a new fuel rail :( but as wtbllltd said it is at the back of the fuel rail just infront of the firewall :)
