I have been looking through my factory shop manual, but there is no specific refference (that I can find yet) onto the order of the plugs and how they fit on the distributor. The only one that I can find that is labeled is #1.

Now, on to some more news, looks like I may have run the car (about 10 min or so) with plugs 2/3 crossed. If this was so I don't understand how the car could of run, but anyways. Any ideas?

I believe I did that once for fun and it did not run. Your timing could be off, which seems would be the only reason for getting spark at the wrong cylinder and still getting combustion...

Well found out what my problem was. On the exhaust side of the turbo one of the 8mm screws came out. This left a small hole where exhaust was comming out. Sounded like I had messed up one of my valves of something. All is well now.

What interests me is how one of the screws just "came out" :)

I crossed 2&3 (i think 2&3) on my 626 once. It just ran really badly. But it ran.
