    Its coming from somewhere dude ;P

    New seals for sure... have seen loads where they have just shrunk and gone a little hard over time (fnarr!)... the injector bungs can also contribute but its mostly the seals...

    Seals are around £3 IIRC... bungs can be done with the inlet on no probs... just be careful tightening them as they are quite brittle... I used a little high temp silicon sealant on mine just because...

    Careful taking them off, the little discs on the end of the injectors can get really brittle. Mine fell apart when taking the injectors out of the manifold and I was picking loads of bits out of the head for ages and then had to source new ones, which was a nightmare.
