Red face heavy gas smell. . .

Can't seem to figure this out, recently had all my injectors serviced, and when I got my car back there was a very strong gas smell coming from the engine bay. When checked out, #2 cylinder injector had a small amount of moisture around it, but no signs of gas leaks anywhere. Tightened #2 injector, still have the strong smell and it's most prevelent right behind the intercooler. Again, no signs of gas leakage but very noticeable, even while driving the car. Have a track day coming up and don't want to end up blowing up my car. . .also have had it looked at twice by a shop and they don't see anything? Any clue what is going on here? It did not do this before the injector service. Thanks for any input, at a loss here and not very comfortable flogging this thing around the track wondering when it's going up in flames

Also check the crush ring to the injector block. You also should go through and tighten the rest of the injectors. One of them is seeping and may be evaporating before you can see it.
