    Its located under the plenum.

    Remove the beauty cover, and you will see the black intake section that rests between the heads & valve covers (this is the plenum), I believe its 6 or 8 bolts to remove this and you will see the starter sitting down in the "valley" of the motor.

    On most cars that is the plenum. On the 2000+ Northstar the "plenum" is the rubber coupler between the TB and the intake manifold, which is what you are describing.
