IIRC, it's set up like this:
123
456
You can check your spark plug wires to make sure though (if you have stock spark plug wires). They're labeled with the cylinder number.

On the stock ignition pack there is a diagram that shows you what number the cylinders are. I know that it is not 123 and 456. It goes something like this:

1 2 3
4 6 5

I just replaced my wires a few weeks ago, but I can't remember off hand what the exact order is. I am pretty sure that this is the correct order though. Just look at the diagram, it is right on the pack. You will probably have to remove the 3 front wires to be able to read it. You will know if you hook up the wires wrong... Either you car will idle roughly, or it will back fire when you rev the engine.
