my nissan stanza has 8 wires on in, like plug wires, my question is, does the nissan stanza station wagon have 8 cylinders or 4 in it. It has power like a 4 cylinder

I was told it has 4 cylinders, but takes 8 plugs. Two to each valve. Intake, and outtake. That's why you have 8 wires. You have 8 plugs. It was initially designed to add performance, I guess.
A bit confusing though!

Update: I think it should be 2 plugs to each cylinder.
