Just keep wiggling the fuel rail, pulling a little on each side...right rear, right front, left rear, left front, until it pops out.
That "T" under the supercharger has been known to do exactly what happened to you. It dries out and gets brittle. I bought some from Ed Morad, or you could check a junk yard. As I understand it, you can't just buy the "T" from the dealer. You have to buy the entire hose. Another option is to make one with a plastic "T" insert and put short pieces of vacuum hoses over each end. You can get those at just about any auto parts store.
T-50 fits well on the tensioner. (Some use a T47.)
