I bought a fuel pressure regulator at autozone and walla! I also took time to tune carb while I was at it.
I know this thread is old but i have the same problem. Only thing is i have a mechanical fuel pump. Is that what you have as well. I didnt think one would need a fuel pressure regulator with a mechanical fuel pump.
