Fuel pressure regulator,or as you said,spider vein is bad,the bad is,no way to test the spider,but check the regulator by checking the fuel pressure,if pressure is good,then more than likely the spider.

Just replace the Spider assembly. It comes with a replacement regulator. Usually the leaky regulator makes the middle 2 cylinders run super rich
