[T3] Gas Tank Troubles

<x-charset iso-8859-1>Okay, so the tank has been totally cleaned.  New filter in place.  Get it on
the road.  Short drives were good, had it on the freeway last night, had a
little bump now and then at high RPMs.  Today, got it on the freeway, the
bump turned into sputtering and missing.  Got it home, and changed the
filter again thinking maybe some left over trash made it's way in.  A little
bit of discoloration, but nothing major.  Anyway, on startup now it is
missing right off.  The fuel pump is the correct model and only 6 months old
according to the PO.  The fuel that ran out of the pump on the original
disconnect was pretty clean so I don't believe a lot of trash got in it.

Getting to the point, here's my question.  At $300 I am not real thrilled
about getting the pump to see if that is the issue.  I would like to know A)
where the fuel pressure regulator is   B) adjustment techniques for it
(maybe equipment required) and  C) does anyone else have any suggestions on
where else to look for this problem?

As a bit more of background, it did this before I cleaned the tank.  It
would miss and act up after it was taken to open throttle for a while.
Letting it sit for a few hours would allow it to run smooth again, starting
the process over.  It was that way until earlier today...  not is misses
from the start up.

Any ideas would really really be appreciated.
