    I think you should run a compression test on #8 and start from there.

    Other possibilities

    Vacuum leak(s)
    Low or weak fuel pressure (including plugged fuel filter)
    Improperly functioning EGR system
    Defective Mass Air Flow Sensor
    Defective Crankshaft and/or Camshaft Sensor
    Defective Throttle Position Sensor
    Mechanical engine problems (i.e.—low compression, leaking head gasket(s), or valve problems

    If this misfire only occurs at high speed, you also have to look at the less likely possibility of a powertrain misfire, especially if you experience any kind of violent jerking while decelerating.
