NGK Wires Firing Order

Hello all,

Just replaced my spark plugs/wires and was wondering what the numeric firing order was for those wires?

Is it from left to right, 1 top 1 bottom 2 top 2 bottom?

Thanks

Pretty simple. First two are leading, second two are trailing.

The bottom are the lead plugs.

Is this how your wires are connected?

Sorry for the stupid question but I just want to get them in right the first time around. Does the "1" go in front or back? I understand that the leading side is the longer wires and trailing side is the shorter wires.

Scroll up and look at the pic posted. Just follow that exact order of plug wires. If the hollow lines that signify the plug wires confuse you, use the one with them colored in. Red to red, blue to blue, yellow to yellow, green to green, etc...

I just put these on my car last week. There are two wires labeled 1 and two wires labeled 2 if that's what your talking about. The only difference between wire labeled 1 and two is the length. Just match them up the diagram above.

For examples, coils 2 and 4 (counting from the front of the car) use the shorter plug wires. 1 and 3 used the longer ones.

They are not in color? You are kidding right?

Here's the NGK pictures

Since nobody has managed to post actual pictures of an actual NGK set, here they are, with added numbering.

The 1's signify rotor 1 at the radiator end of the engine, rotor 2 is firewall end, didn't mark L or T for Leading or Trailing because length spells out where they go. NGK wire set placement with air bellows removed, looking from radiator.
NGK wireset replacement, driver's tire removed for access and visibility, Left wires are rotor 1, right wires are rotor 2.
