1996 Ford Probe Fuel rail location

I need to change a fuel injector, and i'm not sure if what i'm loking at is the fuel rail or not. The way it looks, I would have to remove my intake manifold and the head, just to change one fuel injector. And that just seems like an obnoxious amount of work for the job. If there's an easier way to do this, or i'm in the wrong area, please, enlighten me.
Do you
have the same problem?
