Look over at the passenger side and you'll see two wierd looking connectors. You'll need to buy a fuel rail/ac disconnector tool that you can get from your local auto parts store. You dont need to take the fuel rail off completely unless your replacing it. You can just move it out of the way. Sometimes its a pain to take off even with the tool.

I need to take my heads off for head gasket replacement. I don't have to disconnect the fuel rail, right? Do the injectors stay connected to the fuel rail or should the fuel rail be removed then pull the injectors?

I just did a head gasket job with my dad on a 93 3.8 cougar

We took off the fuel rail and popped out all of the injectors. You'll basically be stripping the engine down to the block. I'm actually not sure if you can get around not taking the fuel rail completely off

There's no reason for you to have to take out the injectors, and unhook the fuel rail on a mustang especially 94-98. If you do take off the injectors be ready to leak a little bit of gas everywhere even though you might have already disconnected the fuel cutoff. Good luck with those headers though. Your going to be pissed after trying to get those headers back on the heads again.

I'm not following you here. It looks like the injectors are in the heads? I was hoping to leave the rubber fuel lines connected and just remove the fuel rail/injectors and lay them to the side...

I thought you meant taking the injectors out or 'off' of the fuel rail. Yea just give those suckers one little tug and you'll get em out of the head.
