Firing order is 123456. Number one being left front cylinder or passenger side front. Cylinders run 1-3-5 going back, driver's side goes back 2-4-6 distributor number one is right in the middle to the front of cap and it turns clockwise. Picturing it as a clock, six o'clock on a clock is number one and then around 2 3 4 5 6.
