mis matching injectors?

so i found the cause of my truck running ****ty is a bad #8 injector after switching different styled cam sensors i pulled the valve cover again and swapped the #6&8 injectors and fired her up and pulled the harness off the bank of injectors one at a time and #6 was now the bad hole so im gunna guess its an injector

now my parts guy tells me theres a specific injector for #8 to resolve a cackle and new to me from ford is $250 (cdn) and i was thinking performance injectors (all 8 $$$) but how much hp are the stock injectors good for?

another option that is most atractive to me right now as funds are tighter than a nuns c u next tuesday is to buy one used injector now my truck if i remember correctly has AB injectors how bad would it be to throw a AD or other non AB injector into the mix

you wouldn't have to, you could have them tuned down, but the would need to be custom tuned

mis matching ab's and ad's is fine. You'd never notice the difference.

I believe no 8 should be an AE injector. The ford guys told me a diffrent injector in that hole will over fuel the 8 cylinder and wash it down. Causing increased wear and hard starting.

Wrong....The AE Long Lead injector is a bandaid for 2 cylinders in that bank firing one after the other. The only "issue" really is noise and shorter injector life. Early 99's and trucks with AB injectors came with no AE injector and those trucks still run fine

My early 99 came with the AE in it. My info came from the ford garage. Do your homework.
