I did a Fuel Pressure Test on the fuel rail and the pressure stayed @ 55 PSI running and during a 10 minute shutdown. If the fuel pressure regulator was faulty i believe i would get a rich condition in both banks?

I'm not getting any misfire codes to show a cylinder is not firing on the rich bank.
My thought was because of the negative LTFT would be a rich condition because of to much fuel? If it was a positive reading my thought was a vacuum leak?

Return less Fuel System
Verify by pressurizing the system and clamping the return line. If it still drops its has to be leaking from the rail, most likely injector.
Single feed line to the fuel rail, no return, and the feed line is steel, cannot pinch off, to test for faulty fuel rail/injector.

What now?
