Your injectors arnt seated correctly or the orings where its damp are bad make sure there seated all the way down or replace the o rings you should have no dampness that means there's a leak at the injector or injectors

Yes, no dampness at all should be present. Like the others have said that sounds like your issue. You can get new o rings to be sure. May be a good time to clean and rebuild your current injectors or upgrade to the 21lb ones

If you have an extra 4" long bolt its one of the manifold bolts. Check to make sure all your manifold bolts are there. Look up the manifold bolt pattern on google for a diagram, IIRC the longest ones go on either side of the tstat housing.


And yes you have a fuel leak somewhere, most likely an injector is not seated right. Remove the rail, check all the O rings, re-seat them and make sure the rail is seated down on all the injectors. There will be no dampness or fuel smell if it is done right.


Why did you do a 2-3 hour job over the course of many days?

I'd definitely pull rails and tb and check all intake bolt holes, there's a tough almost hidden bolt behind hoses and crap at firewall. If all ur bolts are actually in, ur fuel rail or an injector isn't seated properly, as stated before. Hope u torqued ur bolts to spec too, or there lies another possibility

Yep, torqued to spec, in the proper sequence and in a 3 step pattern. You can't just go 22ft lbs on each bolt and call it good. I went 10, then 18, then 22 to finish going around the sequence. Then after 3 heat cycles I went back and re-torqued.
