Yeah, just to back up SkiBum and reiterate my point from earlier: no points, no condenser - it's modern computerized ignition. Going to a Petronix unit would be a step backward and highly unlikely to improve anything.

Cap and rotor are a whopping $35.

Where is the fuel pressure regulator?

fuel pressure regulator is number 2 in diagram:

Top hose is vacuum hose from plenum (apart from checking this for raw fuel, also make sure the hose is not cracked)
Bottom hose is fuel return line.

Ok Updates! Found fuel regulator its brand new! Disconnected vacuum line and no raw gas. I started the car and got a spray bottle with water and sprayed what vacuum lines i could see no leaks. The car idles fine what I found was after driving it and stopping at a red light it got rough but not immediately at startup while standing.

Looking for a vacuum leak with water doesn't work, need some to be type a combustible liquid. Have you pulled your dipstick to look for an RPM change yet?

so are you saying the 'rough running' really only occurs when the car warms up?
