Hard starting...

It takes my 1998 4banger about 8 or so turn overs to get her started cold or not. Is there anything I should replace such as sparkplugs to have her start easier? Opinions?
Thanks

If it is a fast crank (i.e. battery ok) then make sure you have good fuel pressure coming in to the engine.

Try turning the key to the inn position but not starting it, let it sit there a few seconds then attempt to start. This allows the fuel pump to start running before you attempt to fire it up.
