Just picked this up with an intake... it was broken in transit. My question is, can it be repaired? It almost looks like the fuel rail is modular, and I could replace the injector holder....

The fuel rail is service in one piece as a complete assembly (no injectors but all 8 injector pods and connectors assembled)

No way to repair that that I know of. Can't glue the nylon injector pod.....

thanks. wonder if i can post a 'wanted' ad in the new classifieds?

edit - why'd they make them out of plastic anyways? Anything fuel flows through should be metal in my opinion...........

Well....metal corrodes and with all the strange things showing up in gasoline and the addition of corrosive additives like alcohols and other solvents corrosion is a big deal. Plastic fuel lines never corrode with time.
