The pixs in my manual show the cannon plug wire bundles have different lengths longest to the front of car,install them in shorter order, then take out spark plugs and put bare wire around the threads and the othr end to ground. Put plug back into ign. wire that you removed earlier. crank engine to start while you watch the plugs spark in proper order.If not then changethe harness at the module to the proper sequence
