Good fit; here are the tools necessary

Fit a Buick Century 2001
Needed a Torx-30 bit to remove the mounting bolt that secures it to the engine. Needed a 15/16-inch crescent wrench to remove the swage connector on the fuel return line. A swivel-head crescent wrench would make installation much more easy than a straight handle. Pushing down the throttle was also necessary to access fuel line nut.
Just installed. Will try to update after more use.

replaced the factory regulator as it was leaking into vacuum line. installed first bwd #23091 REGULATOR and within 2 hours car lost fuel pressure,thinking regulator couldnt be defective,i replaced fuel pump. still insufficient fuel pressure. warrantied regulator with another bwd unit,dropped 10psi of pressure, warrantied fuel pump,checked fuel lines for blockage,checked injectorsand fuel rail for leakage. finally re-installed original (but leaking) regulator and had adequate fuel pressure.warrantied out bwd unit and installed an ac delco unit and all is good. to make a long story short:2 defective borg warner fuel pressure regulators cost me 2 1/2 days of lost labpr time and almost cost me a customer. i have never had an issue with borg warner in the past BUT I WILL HAVE RESERVATIONS BEFORE USING THEM AGAIN !!!! the commericial guys at my store were very helpful with warranties and ordering my parts so BIG UPS TO NICK,JOE,BENS 1&2

      Comments about BWD Fuel Pressure Regulator:

      once you have it out. change the bolt "screw" use different head. Original design is bad using T-30. took 1.5 hours instead of 10 minutes job. had to use a hacksaw then grind the screw out. they should provide a hex head ex. 10mm screw with new part. part itself is great so far. No fuel smell in van anymore and seems more power.

        Comments about BWD Fuel Pressure Regulator:

        Replaced the OE fuel pressure reguator because it was leaking. Installed a BWD regulator and the engine barely ran! The engine sputtered and hesatated and the car didn't go over 10 MPH. I put the original unit back in and the car ran great (despite the OE unit leaking). I exchanged the BWD unit with an A C Delco and the car ran great with no gas leaking. I read other reviews on this website from customers who bought the same BWD unit and had the same problem. I'm glad I wasn't alone with the problem being the BWD unit as the cause of the problem.

                        If the vacuum line to the fuel pressure regulator is wet with fuel or smells of fuel, it is a clear indication that the diaphragm in the fuel pressure regulator is bad and it should be replaced.

                      Will a bad fuel pressure regulator cause an odor of gasoline when you first start the vehicle, and perhaps make the engine turn over longer before it starts?

                        A:

                        Sometimes when it begins to go out, the engine will sound like it is misfiring. This can be a slight chug or missing a beat in the circulation of the plugs. Because a malfunctioning regulator can cause the plugs to foul fast and frequently, this will eventually be one of the symptoms. Some cars will have a hesitation at take off. An engine will seem to hiccup then all will be fine. In a few cars the hesitation will happen lightly at first then it’ll start to grow larger or it will be enough to make it stall.
