It is very common. The firing order is 1-2-7-3-4-5-6 -8. Since 8 fires right after 6 #8 may not get enough fuel. That is why Ford started using the long lead injector in #8. Some even fail on #3 and #8. I wouldn't worry about it unless you are having symptoms of a bad injector.

well I am having a very low boost issue and its starting to look like injectors are bad. If one injector is bad would it contribute to only building 10 psi of boost?

No. Something is wrong with your turbo system. Boost leaks, exh leaks, turbo itself...

Not to hijack, but this seems somewhat related. Would a P0284 code have any correlation to white smoke coming from the exhaust when accelerating? (not when starting or when cold, just accelerating)

check the firewall for carbon build up where the up pipes are connected, there is a doughnut type seal that is known to fail and this will lower boost numbers. Check for play in the turbo wheel. Also make sure the boots in the IC plumbing are in good shape and the clamps are good n tight.
