Hey I was thinking about cleaning my fuel rail but Im not sure if I should just keep and clean the rail I already have on my EF XR6 or get an AU one and clean that, will the AU one fit and is it even any different then the EF one. And how would I clean the fuel rail?
I'm only doing this because I'm changing my injectors and thought it couldn't hurt cleaning the rail while it's off
P.S is it worth changing the fuel pressure regulator? The car is running pretty crap on start up in cold weather
Cheers

I didn't know, I figured that since injectors get dirty that the fuel rail could too
