Since I swapped 4 and 8 with 2 and 6 to diagnose? I'd say about 50 miles. Plus quite a while idling right after, with the ebp valve closed to warm it up while I cleaned up the shop, just to get it up...

Knock and miss... Not injectors or compression?

99.5 F550 7.3 Powerstroke 4x4 ZF6

Makes a knock when driving that has a metallic ring to it. Sometimes it's barely there in the diesel noise, occasionally it's so loud that nobody can miss it.

Really? The AE on #8 is not stock and requires a pcm update? Somehow I thought it was. Would that have anything to do with a #4 and #8 cct failure? Now I need to double check what I have.
