Alright, well i screwed up the original set of injectors, and after 3 weeks or so of the car sitting there, new injectors have finally come in the mail. I purchased Venom Hi-Flow injectors FYI. Now the issue is the 2 injectors on the right side closest to the rear are leaking fuel when i go to start it. I dont know why this is. Has anyone else had this issue and do they know the solution?

I believe Russ had a problem with his Venom injectors. Have you tried to swap those two injectors with injectors from the other cylinders to see if they still leak?

That is a quick way to asses if the injectors are faulty, or if it's something else.

I bought a set of Venom injectors for my Formula. They sucked. I returned them and bought some Ford injectors.

It turned out to not be the injectors, the injectors work great. The problem was that the steel line that comes off of the fuel rail, that attaches at a 45 degree angle held down by a large nut, need needed a gasket, and it was spraying out when it didnt have one. and i couldnt tell at first because i was looking at the pools of fuel at the injectors. so, problem solved.
