This was not noticeable from the outside. I highly doubt there is anything wrong with the hard lines or fuel rail. It's likely the short rubber fuel lines or injector o-rings.

This was what mine looked like once it was pulled off the head. Waaay easier to deal with. Needed some convincing to get them off the rail!
