So..... After my new injectors install. I did not get the oil drain seated in the grommet . I was anxious to run & tune, so I took the precautionary , misguided step of applying high temp RTV on the perimiter. Ran my rig & put it thru the paces for about a week at different times. Oil drip ...... every time.
Removed this mess on Sunday:

I had a brandie new grommet in stock, so I said to myself : ' Self, I can save some dough & fab up my own drain tube."

So.......after 4 hours of :censored: , I ended up with this pile of :poop: :

Make sure to tie wrap the other houses on the T, and everywhere they lead to.

The DS of the T feeds the FPR and the PS is supposed to feed the MAP sensor. Not sure if your setup uses the MAP, but if it comes off or leaks, you will loose pressure to the FPR and could have a very bad day.
