Over here, Doru supplied a great post explaining the related vacuum for the V8:

V8 CCV design is actually a cyclone, a different design than i6. It has no diaphragm.

The vacuum is created different.

Also, if ingestion occurs, the cylinder bank that gets it should be all disabled, not only 3 cylinders. Why is the 4th healthy?
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
