Default Fuel leak

So I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 that has a fuel leak and it is right by the fuel injectors. But it isn't because I replaced the Fuel rails and I am kinda wondering whether it could be the intake manifold.

Maybe you tore an o-ring.

If the o-rings are dry then they can roll when you push them in and deform. Did you lube them for the install?
