Icon4 Anyone with a 2.9 V6 Help please!

I have been working on this spark plug change for two days! I was an idiot thinking my haynes book would have the correct firing order and ripped off all the wires from the cap. So if anyone with a 2.9 V6, if you could check your firing order for me and let me know that would be greatly appreciated. I am off by two i think because it fires up but runs terribly! Thank you

Did you note the picture with the cylinder firing order and the spark plug wiring for the distributor cap (noting the relative position of the cap to block)? Click Link
