I found this while searching the UK ebay for 2.9 parts... It looks to be an awesome 2.9 fuel rail! I Love it! Thoughts?
I put his item description in google translator:
"Refurbished Ford SCORPIO, SIERRA MK1 2.9i V6 injector holder for intake manifold / air collector. The flange has been completely refurbished. To use this overhaul, this was fine blasted and the sealing surfaces / contact surfaces were planned. The vacuum box is also functional and included with the purchase.
Ford part no .: 88TF9D280AB
I am happy to answer any questions you may have."

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
He got a new parts truck and probably has been hocking off parts to buy more Euro-Ford parts.

Probably working. Its boom or bust in the oil trade so if there is work there is no time to play.

Heh. Though it may be a fuel rail in theory, it also works for nitrous if you switch the valving around a bit.

Purchased. Thank you.

Round.
What's suppose to be the benefit over the normal style fuel rail? To me it seems like it's just a more complex piece that adds more gaskets to the intake?

Early and American style rail is steel, and is prone to rust internally over time. Late style like this is aluminum, so no rust.

Fill the inside with Glyptal paint like you did everything else... it won’t rust.

That's what I liked about it... Plus, it looks really, really clean and tidy. Let us know how it fits.
