I got this from Swamps site last night and am going with it....essentially I am going to ignore this one and if the issue gets worse I will run a compression test and bypass the dam AE program and possible CPS interference since I cannot get a black sensor anymore.
"Cylinder Contribution Tests can often flag cylinders #1 & #8, or #3 & #8 as both failing the CCT. Anytime #1 & #8 are paired as hacing balance faults...especially on 99-03 trucks, this may indicate a fuel delivery problem (pressure, contamination, etc). The pairing of #3 are “companion” cylinders...so an internal or external engine balance problem will often show up as 3&8 cyls failing balance tests. We have also seen a CPS (camshaft position sensor) show false codes related to cyls 3&8...however if the engine runs normally, then it is our recommendation to simply ignore these phantom codes."
