It's fine. Adding things in parallel reduces the overall resistance,
increasing the current demand, and putting more load onto the driver.
Having 4 injectors instead of 8 means half the load on the driver.
It'll be fine that way.

transistor drivers usually switch the ground connection rather than the
power connection. As far as grounding goes, if you have the schematic
then duplicate it as much as possible. I don't think the injector
grounds need to be kept separate.

Isn't there a port 4 cyl box/calibration you could start with?
