red injectors in my 9-5

so, performance debate aside, I need some help.

It's been a while since I've swapped, but when I found out I had a bad injector, I bought a set of reds off ebay. They're supposed to be the same flow as brown, so I thought "no big deal".

now, somewhere along the line, I have a small fuel leak. I'm guessing it's the o-rings, since I re-used old ones, and I'm just not known for being delicate/gentle when needed.

so, I'm looking on ebay for o-ring kits, and I notice there's a BIG difference between the brown:


and red:


now, it's been a while since I swapped them, and I'm going to buy the kit for the reds, but what the hell is that middle o-ring for? I don't really remember having to mess around with the middle ring.

Also, those "vents" down around the bottom... what are they? do they go to nothing?

Thanks, guys!

Those red ones are not for a SAAB, no upper O-ring on any of them.

Those are literally the injectors in my car. They're early 9-5/viggen injectors. The debate isn't about whether they fit. I know what they're from, and that they're in my car.

99 and Early 2000 Saabs have the air injected manifolds you need to swap the manifold or only use reds.
