Default WTB: 2 fuel rail spacers

You know those stupid plastic disk shaped things that you drop 5 times when you are trying to get the fuel rail back on? I need 2 of them for a super secret project. :gay:

Thx

yeah, they didn't get caught in the undertray like they usually do. I checked. They must have fallen and rolled. I wasn't expecting them to come off this time because I epoxied the spacers in place when I put my 1.8 injectors in.

I reinstalled the rail, but didn't overtighten the bolts. Seems to be ok, no leaks yet. If/When I get another Link board and put the 550s back in, I'll put in some spacers or washers.

Damn I hate those things. They have caused me so much pain and anger. I would like to sit down with whoever designed that.
