Default Delta Kitchen Faucet replacement

Hi all. Hope someone can help. I had my kitchen faucet replaced over the weekend. Put in a new Delta single faucet pullout spray. Great looking, but the water pressure is about 1/3 of what the old one was. I automatically figured that it had to be the flow restrictor that all the new ones have inn them. I went to remove the aerator, figuring the restrictor was in there and i would just remove it and I would be fine. Seems this model, the aerator doesn't come off.

It is the Cicero model. I bought it at Home Depot.

Does anybody know where or how I get to the restrictor to remove it?

Do you get the designed-in flow rate, 2 GPM or whatever? You can check it with a bucket and clock.

I just did the check, and sure enough, it failed miserably. Got only 1/2 a gallon in a minute instead of the 2.2. I spoke to Delta, who is sending me a new wand. I assume if that doesn;t fix it, it might be the cartridge. I still wonder where the restrictor is in the darn thing.
