I think maybe the person might have been referring to setting the timing once the head or cams have been removed. That would not be controlled by a computer. You first have to set the crankshaft marks on TDC, which consists of a groove on the bottom pulley being aligned with the timing tab. Both of which are located on the passenger side of the car. Depending on which engine that you may have(there are 3 possibilites from what I have seen) you need to align the intake and exhaust cam marks with the crankshaft also. Being careful to tighten the caps on the intake and exhaust cams to the cylinder head. .

The fuel pressure regulator on a 1990 Geo Prizm is located in the fuel line that runs along the valve cover of the engine. It is an inline device that is no bigger than the fuel line itself.

Yes, not a problem. Any unfit components swap it from your old engine.

Ther are three different engine configurations used on the 1990 prizm. Check a repair manual such as Haynes. If you plan on keeping the car for a long time a manual would be a good investment.
