some say cylinder #3 will be done even if you have them. i don't believe there is any concrete proof that rails help with the #3 problem. I would save the money and put it towards an ej257 short block in the future

Don't get fuel rails. Quote from Phil at Element Tuning:

"Subarus in particular are known to have problems related to a lean running cylinder. Often fuel rails are recommended but they only increase overall fuel and donít address the problem of uneven air distribution to various cylinders."

I have 279hp and dont have fuel rails and the car runs fine.
