Default Quick coil / ICM question

Hey guys,

I got the bracket, ICM, and coils from Bill earlier in the week, and before I get it all put back together with my new plugs / wires Im wondering in what order do I stick the coils on the ICM in order to make the numbers match the cylinders... you know what I mean? Do they go in the same order as the stock coil pack thing did?

Basically, I need a pic of the coil setup on an 90 or so so I can see the order the coil packs were put on.

Thanks!
-Bob

And I pulled all my plug wires, but as far as I know from the front of the car, the firing order is, from passenger side to driver'*



1 - 3 - 5 front bank
2 - 4 - 6 rear

right?

Ok, well I got everything bolted up (except for one of the screws I got was way too long) and well how come mine are in the wrong order? Like the 4 and the 1 on the bottom coil should be in each others places? So is 4 REALLY 1 and 1 is 4?

Thanks for all your help guys

Got it, so 4 really is 1, and 1 really is 4.
