I have found the source of the problem - I did not have the intake manifold tightened down enough on its new injector blocks and gaskets. I finally found a torque setting which suggested 18 ft/lb. I was using about 5. This has improved things a lot pressure wise. But I still am not convinced you can hold a static pressure in the system as a means of testing it. I get significant loss via the idle bleed screw - which would seem unavoidable - given how it functions. Unless it shuts completely off if you screw it hard in.
