Hello and welcome to Just Answer

the Ferrai F136 Y engine used in your Maserati was Ferrari's 1st direct injection engine and like a lot of early GDi they can be quite noisy, especially from cold

later models have a different fuel rail and pump designs that alleviate this

I'd say the safest option is to make up some insulation and some guards to go over the top if the noise bothers you that much

it would also be worth trying some fuel injection lubricant like

as well as trying a couple of tanks of premium fuel too

as for noise reduction try here for materials

Thank you so much , so the link for insulation can you send me a picture of item number?
Thanks again

No problem

Part No. 801124, please note you would cut to size required

to get the best results you would make a thing metal 'shell' to cover the fuel rails and line the inside of the shell with this fire retardant insulation
