cel fuel injector problem help

I have a 2003 honda accord v6 6 speed manuel. I change the spark plugs and noticed that they were turned wight. This is obsviely meaning the engine is running lean. I found it on all the cylanders. Then the cel came on. I brought it to the dealer and they told me i might need fuel injectors. This would make no senes for the fact all the fuel injectors failing at once would basice stop the car. so they took a snap shot and sent it to honda. they called me back and said we need to run a fuel line test. This i can belive because lack of fuel pressure would cause a lean condition. Also what set the cel was a misfire. I didn't trust the honda dealers so i read up on the forms and found that the fuel system is a none reture type, and over six grand rpm your fuel mixture leans out. I would like to know has this happned to anyone and can you upgrade the fuel system to pump more fuel.

I have not read about your issue in particular happening to others. I know that the fuel only feeds too one side in the 7th gens. Paul NVA-AV6 has perfected a way to feed fuel from both sides.

a kink in the fuel line can cause problems such as this.

i am going to check for a kink but wouldn't that degrade the performance so much that i couldn't drive the car. They said it wasn't a true missfire, and they really had no clue what it was i think they were part shopping, but is it true that the car leans out at above six grand.
