Guys have a look at Expert Card Technique. I'm sure it's not the first place, but it contains charts of the exact card positions of all the cards throughout the 8 faros back to completion. I'm assuming 8 In Faros could be returned to new order with a simple cut.

Like several have mentioned there is no need to be able to do 8 perfect faros. The most required by any trick I have seen is 2 perfect faros.

If you want to end with perfect order simply do 6 perfect faros before starting the performance. Do a false shuffle (Green/zarrow) and then finish with 2 faros.

8 faros is an overkill to the spectators.

Tried the speed test again like I do every few months. Still nowhere remotely near doing 8 in a minute.

Determining the middle of the deck by eye measurement isn't the problem. It's actually parting the deck there with the fingertips and not having two neighboring cards "want" to stay together that is .
