97 wrangler 2.5l heatsoak problem

i think i have narrowed my last problem down with my wrangler. #3 injector heat soak, im going to try the fix for the problem, but is there a certain way the injectors are supposed to face, if so, does anyone have an idea or a picture?

I had minor heat soak issues with mine and pretty bad issues with my 4.0 xj... hood louvers are a cheap way to get under hood heat out from engine bay and might be a good long term solution... i installed the hyline louver panel and i can now touch my hood after running for a while where as before it was so hot it would burn ya if you were not careful!

Have you tried an insulation wrap on the fuel rail and leading up to injector? The manifold below is usually the culprit and you might want to see if you can use a small bit of header wrap or make a shield to deflect heat... with heat soak you have to look down the line and see what part is absorbing so much heat...

Push each fuel injector into the rail, making sure to push straight, wiggle a bit if you need to but KEEP THEM STRAIGHT. After they are all seated fully, make sure they are rotated the correct way install the clip nuts.

My question on the injectors is, should they all be in the same position like 2 o'clock, 12 o'clock, 10 o'clock... Ect. Or does it not matter? I made a decent sized shield out of aluminum duct tape, not quite sure if its doing the trick. I'm going to try the spark plug insulator trick, hopefully that does it
