you sure the boot and/or clamps are seated properly when you install?? Did you pull the fuel rail to get the most access? I remember getting the #4 cyl (drivers side) on last and it was the most difficult. the bottom edge didnt want to go around the upper intake (part not attached to head). I put the couplers on the head side first, tightened those clamps and then started with #1 and worked my way across.
yup, and everything was snugged up tight, even new o-rings on the injectors for piece of mind...
I know it sounds like I moofed somewhere, but it's pretty easy to tighten hose clamps.

Aw, heck - you mean what I know...
