'92 Ford E250, 5.8L engine

The manual says that the injectors fire in groups of 4, i.e. four of them fire and then the other four, etc.

Anyone know whether this will cause any problem with the readings from the fuel injectors? Should I change the code to dive by four, or just calibrate the reading that I get?

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to EM

Is bank fire an option? That would prevent any mess ups else divide by 4

I don't think it matters. If one injector fires, the rest will fire, at the same time or in sequence before that injector fires again. Either way it is one to one. You are clear to proceed to calibration

I don't think bank firing is an option - I think it just works that way.

But it sounds like I can just ignore this issue.

Thanks for the help.
