Default Adding twice the flavoring syrup - Will it cause problems?

I am currently fermenting A hefe (extract recipe) and when I get to bottling plan on adding my Mandarin syrup - however.... If I double the 4oz of syrup to 8oz will that change the carbonating & cause exploding bottles?

Are you adding Torani Syrup?

Mandarin Orange syrup | Torani Flavor

Or some sort of wine flavoring?

The Torani syrup is mostly sugar.

It is a beer flavoring sold at my local brew shop - A product of a local brewery here in Phoenix called Sonoran Brewery.

You'll have to determine how much sugar is in the syrup. If it has any king of a 'Calories from carbohydrates' number, figure 100 Calories is about one ounce of sugar.
