HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

The difference in the two is the #8 has a slightly shorter intensifier piston which causes the injector to begin it's prime shot a tiny bit sooner than an AD injector would. This is supposed to quieten some dead head noise they had.

Performance wise, no difference and will not hurt then engine. You may get a bit of noise, but that is it

Thanks Eric - I guess I should have left the AE’s in if noise is the only issue. But, I took them out and sent them back to exchange for AD’s. Thanks for the advice. ~ Tom

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
