The even #s should face the front of the car.If your standing in front of the car facing the coilpack it goes like this:

rear of car
351
426
front of car
yup

I have ran mine both ways. Just make sure you get the right wires to the right numbers. I have mine like this now:

rear
351
426
front

Both my cars are

rear of car
351
426
front of car

And one of my cars has only 13K on it. But it is like Einstein's theory of relativity, as long as the proper wires are plugged in, like CallmeMud says it is relative.

i just don't get it :confused:
i just removed the whole coil pack again and this time i did a search on how the coils are wired properly under the coils in the module and the search info is from STEVE WOOD so it must be accurate.
i checked the coils ohm resistance and all three of them are reading around 11ohms so, i put all the plug wires on for the 100th time and it still does not run good actually this time it won't even stay running? :confused:
my ac cr43ts plugs are regapped by me today at .035" and i triple checked them too.could the plugs be gapped to much or not?i really don't know what's the deal it ran fine this morning before i swaped out the coils plug wires and regapped plugs. dunno

Here is a piece I submitted to GNTTYP.ORG on the correct way to wire the coil pack/module: http://www.gnttype.org/techarea/engine/ignitionmodule.jpg


If it was running perfect before you may have a problem above or you have a couple of wires crossed. If it isn't that you may have a bad module still. Have seen them bad right out of the box!

THE above sequence is exactually how it is on my car as we speak.
i think i'm going to take the new coil pack off and reinstall my old coil pack that was working this morning.If the car does not run after that then i will regap the plugs from .035" back to.029" like i had them this morning.thanks

thank you for the above coil/pack module wiring diagram,unfortunayely my wires seem to be all connected correctly.
i have the coil/module in my hand and i know the colored wires are connected as noted above but i want to ask: Does it matter which end of the remaing coils to plug the blue wires into which terminals ;the three remaing coils that don't have wires in them are coils 4 2 6 do i plug the blue wires starting with the #4 coil or start with the #6 coil for the remaing 3 blue wires ?if not then,i must have a bad coil pack or the gaps on the plugs themselves are way off i have them gapped at a true .035" all of them

Blue can go to any of them because they feed off one common wire if you look closely. The gap problem doesn't float here. Nothing wrong with that. You didn't foul a plug though did you? That will make it run like crap. MAF good? You didn't unplug the ECM and forget to plug it back in? What chip setup do you have? If you have a Max-Effort and plug the chip in backwards it will run like **** (don't ask how I know) and ruin the chip. eek!

i may have fouled a plug but should'nt have any reason too.
my maf was good this morning.
my ecm in the ps floor board is connected.
i have a stock chip,reds93 chip and thrasher92 chip;the car acts up no matter which chip i install.can these chips be installed both ways or just one way?
i think i'll try the old coil pack and after that maybe change the plugs out and after that shoot my car
headbang

i really thought that new plug wires and a new coil pack could not hurt but could only help if anything.So much for that philosophy! :rolleyes: is it allright to install my chips either way?

i just tried my old coil pack again and the car still runs ruff and rich so in the morning i'll change all the plugs and check the ones in there now.If it's not the plugs then it would have to be the coil module (since i removed it today for first time)or the maf since i removed it today while i was reinstalling my cold air kit.we will see tommorrow.talk at yaw soon .thanks for all the quick responses. cheers

Is there any chance that you may have cracked the #6 plug while installing it?It can happen if you can't get at it good and you turn your ratchet awkwardly. dunno Just a thought??You've checked about everything else. help
