The fuel rails are different part numbers. Now, this probably is due to different materials, like O rings, etc. I can't say with any authority whether they are dimensionally the same, but as far as the catalog is concerned, the Z and the T engine use different fuel rails, and I can only assume that there are more differences that aren't readily apparent. My opinion on is this is that they are NOT the same.

Please take a moment to rate my answers, that's how I get compensated. If you have more questions, I am happy to follow up with you.
