Yes. It is a design flaw. It is because on a Powerstroke the last two cylinders in the firing order go #6, #8 ... Being that 6, is immediately in front of 8, it can't catch the "right" amount of fuel so it starves a little. That's why it knocks or "cackles" if you hear about injector cackle, that's it. It's because of this "starving" that the #8 is typically first to go. Some Powerstrokes have a different injector in the #8 hole, that was Ford's cheap fix. A Regulated Return system cures this problem.

Ok thanks for the info. I have a aftermarket spring in the fuel return that bumps up
The fuel pressure to 90 psi, would this get the fuel to the #8 injector faster so it doesn't
Starve for fuel? And what were you talking about a regulated fuel system?

90 is kinda high from what I have heard. I dont have one but I have read not to go over 70 psi!
