check the cap and rotor, as well as the plug wires. You could also try running some seafoam through it. If your still getting the misfire try swapping #8 injector with one form another cylinder and see if the misfire follows it

It could be the wires (did you replace plug wires with the new plugs)?

A compression or leakdown test would be next if all the above fails to find it.

just on #8? does it have oil on the plug? have you changed the plenum gasket?
