Sounds like a coil. Is your engine is a coil on plug or is it a waste spark system? If it is the latter, and cyl 1 and cyl 8 share a coil than its either the coil itself or the signal voltage to the coil. Was the HO2s bank 1 code for sensor 1 or sensor 2?

many things could be happening. it could be a camshaft, it could be a distributor. Does it knock or make any sounds.
