It is possible that the regulator is leaking into the intake plenum, or one of the injector lines has a bad O-ring and is doing the same thing. This was actually a big problem with this system on the 4.3L engines, but it is a little different on the 5.7. Before tearing into this this though, I think it would be a good idea to get a professional diagnosis. I would start with a compression test. The miss could be caused by low compression in one or more cylinders. The injector assembly has the regulator mounted right on the side of it and the whole assembly resides inside the intake plenum. It is not that difficult a job, requires some patience and skill, the worst part is the cost of the parts.
I've attached a picture of the injector assembly with the reg attached and highlighted

have it tested using a manual gage if still low then main baring ore most likely bad that would mean a over hall if is really low and bearings bad should be making rattle noise when started up first few seconds
