I was just wondering where the oil pressure regulator is located in my car and if I could change it without taking the motor apart. I want to use the Racing Beat 80 psi street version. Is this possible?

its in the bottom of the rear iron housing, it would require you to pull the oil pan to change

Is this a mod that is worth doing by itself or do you really need to do things like upgrade jets, etc to get the most out of it?

If I'm correct just adding the new regulator should increase the pressure without any other modifications.

More pressure equals faster flow and more flow at higher rpms when it's needed most.
