Now thats what I call an explosion... That looks to be the victim of a leaky fuel pressure regulator to get an explosion like that... Looks like you may need to consider getting a Fuel Rail from the wrecker, it seems as if yours is now mangled out of shape from the explosion... This is the first time I have seen one blow up so bad that it destroyed both the intake and the Injector sight shield... All I can say is WOW

it even gouged the upper hood of the car-my poor mechanic friend really was shook up at how dangerous it would have been if the hood was open-he kept muttering at how NOT right it is-i asked him about the rails so i know he is looking into all that too-i still will try to suggest taking it to a dealer if he thinks it is too much for him-but right now my job is unscrewing all the bolts and all that and i am stuck at trying to find the tricky hidden upper manifold bolt-i am sure he will know were it is but i was just trying to get as much taken apart as i could-i dont know why i like this car so much but i think if we get it fixed i will just steal it from my niece who thinks its to big for her!!!

Show this to your mechanic friend...

For the hidden bolts, look to the upper left intake port in the lower manifold, if you look just to the left of that port there is a hidden bolt down in there, and if you look to the right of the lower right hand side intake port you'll find the other hidden bolt...
