old style oil rails vs. new style

hey guys. i am going to be pulling the motor soon to fix my bedplate leak and do a couple of other things. i am wondering if it is worth the cost and hassle to upgrade to the newer style oil rails in the head? i would need new (used) heads to go with it as well. i know they are quieter while running. just wondering if its worth it or not.
let me know what you think about this.
thanks

I guess your talking about the oil rails on top of the head under the valve cover that feeds the injectors? If so I thought they were all the same..

With the mods you have listed in your sig, IMHO it's not worth the cost.

It's ok..

If they sell they sell, and if not I'll keep 'em... Even with a powermax and 155's I don't think you'll come even remotely close to needing to upgrade the rails and pump to the newer style. Won't run any better or worse either way.

IF you dont have all the parts its not worth your time an effort. you'll need more then just oil rails. Id know lol

04.5 Rocker boxes
04.5 Oil rails
04.5 All the oil rail bolts
04.5 Branch Tube
04.5 Valve Covers
04.5 CCV
04.5 FICM Mounting Bracket
STC fittings, stand tubes

Think thats it. Might be missing something though

Newer glowplug harness' for each side, and the different ICP mount, sensor, and wiring extension for it...along with a plug to seal the old ICP sensor location.
But, if I had to do it again...I would also just get the newer '05 style HPOP and housing...all HPO problems solved.
