where are they not fitting....the fuel rail? or the manifold?
If its the manifold, you might need to dremel out the hole in the grommet a little bit.

exactly, DO NOT dremel out the manifold....enlarge the hole in the o-ring that sits in the manifold. This will allow the larger injector to fit into the o-ring.

well it should be very tight but if its too tight that u cant fit the injectors in take a dremel with the bit that has a sandpaper roll around out and shave it down a little bit.

putting them in the manifold is tight? so it fits, just tight? Thats fine.. lube up the outside a LITTLE bit.. and tighten the fuel rail on top of them and see if they stay in place. If not just take a tad off the outside of the o-ring with whatever you have handy

just make sure u go ina circular fashion dont dremel a big indent in one part of the ring and do it little at a time.you can always take more off but you can never add more.
