    It will be under some pressure yes. Get a large thick rag to cover your engine and when you pull the injectors the small amount of fuel will be soaked up.
    Maybe worth removing the fuel pump fuse too, although i cant remember the number. DO NOT cycle the ignition, it will prime the system ready for start up, (hence removing the fuse is a good idea)
