Facing the engine, left to right on the front is 1,3,5.
Facing the engine, left to right on the back is 2,4,6.

Verify this first, and re-seat all your boots on both ends. Verify that you didn't break a plug during the install, or mash the gap.

With aftermarket coils like mine, I do not know where the numbers are on the coils. Anyone wanna post a pic of the stock coils so I can see where the wires go???

Cool thank you will, that helps for next time I change the wires. Got it saved on the Desktop. The jegs coils I ordered did not have anything on them.

Mine came from Jegs....the numbers just magically appeared one day while I had them here at work

Weird.

LOL, the numbers are very uniform, so I will assume a machine drew them, as opposed to a hand laser.
