it probably wouldnt matter but as long as the 4 sparks are evenly spaced throughout the chamber it would ignight the propane faster (but not a noticable amount more) creating a faster spike in the pressure

Well what do you want here? Better theoretical performance or better reliability?

Lanter sparkers are said to be more reliable though I choose stun guns. They are cooler and work quite well.

I wouldn't bother with four sparks though. Having four will require that you set the gaps small. Setting them too small can prevent reliable ignition.
