easier to install fuel rail?
« on: 11:53:17 AM / 11-Sep-12 »
maybe this is a dumb question, but im going to ask it anyways. hahaha.

when i removed my injectors it was a PITA. i had to unbolt the intake manifold in order to have enough room to move the rail. is there an after market rail that will be easier to use if i have to remove the injectors again in the future?

its a bit easier if you dont have the dumb brackets and unecassary crap on the engine. still a pain tho. you have to get the rail loose and then pull the injector tips out of the manifold. then rotate the rail so the injectors point upwards. then you can pull the injectors out of the rail.

I removed the head with intake/ exhaust manifolds, turbo, etc bolted up.  Fuel rail was simple to get out with the head laying on my work bench..lol
