Default Changed LIM gasket....car wont start...maybe firing order???

so i changed the LIM gasket on my car,..everything went smoothley, but now the car wont start. I checked, and there is lots of fuel pressure, but i think my firing order is messed up. Can anyone throw me a picture of where my wires are supposed to go to which coil?? thanks

The firing order that i am using right now is the same as the l67....and i am also assuming that on my coils...the ones closest to the driver are 6,3 then 2,5, then 4,1 with 4,1 being closest to the passenger side.

i hope im wrong with the order....since i have no idea what else could be wrong. Fuel injectors are clipped in and hooked up, and i have no leftover bolts

The front 3 cylinders are 1, 3, 5, from front to right. Back 3 are 2, 4, 6.

Even if you swapped the coils around, the wires would still go in the same place as shown.

I can't imagine RTV preventing a start. Unless you gooped up the ends of the spark plugs with it. I'm assuming it'* just on the LIM end seals, and thus nowhere near the plugs. Got all your sensors plugged back in?
