how long for injectors to break in?

i replaced #8 injector and o-rings on other injectors and drove 10 miles but cylinder 8 still fails contribution test, how long does it take for injector to break in? also on my taskmaster scanner i have info for cylinder rotational vel %, what is this reading for? my cylinder 8 is at 6.3% but all others are at 0%.

Cylinder rotational vel % (aka PERDELs) should be 0's, ideally. Its the % of crankshaft rotational loss after that specific injector fires. I think anything over 3% will fail a contribution test, correct me if i'm wrong.

its been 50 miles now and my cylinder 8 still is at 6.3% on rotational vel. when i replaced the cylinder 8 injector i did a compression test and that was good, so if its not the injector or lack of compression then why does 8 still fail counterbalance test? at idle it reads 6.3 % but if i raise rpms past 800 it reads 0%, so the injector must be good if it only acts up at idle, could it be my injector module or maybe a weak pump?

when we install injectors will say 100 to 150 miles to ensure correct break in on thme to work all air out.

The rotational test only works at idle, once you come off idle it quits working.

Give it some time.
