Default 940 Turbo with leak at back two injectors?

I sprayed some throttle body cleaner in and around to find the leak and now can't decide
weather to think it's the injector o-ring or the v-lines in and around the injectors.
The car has 200k on it and has never had the injectors messed with.
What's the general thought? Thanks for your time, Red Rocker.

What problem are we dealing with here?

Were you trying to find a vac leak? Using the ole spray and pray method is great... if you can see or feel a leak. Spraying that stuff in that area and hearing the motor surge means it could be tons of stuff.

I don't really advocate for the parts cannon, but you basically have 2 options. 1... smoke test or otherwise generally narrow down where the leak is. or 2. Start replacing old vac lines and injector o-rings. Since these parts are wear items that have more than likely aged out... and replacing them isn't crazy expensive... it may just be good measure.

Default I think.

If I remove the fuel rail the old vac lines may just fall apart anyway.
Thanks for the reply.
