Ford's convention is to assign left and right as if the viewer were sitting in the driver's seat (non-transverse mounted), not standing in front of the bumper.

Add that to LxMan1's tip and you're set.

you want the firing order, or the plug placement? They have pretty much covered it above for plug placement. RH would be the passenger side.

Firing order, if it hasn't changed from 99 - 2003 is 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8

FWIW, firing order on these engines in pretty much no longer relevent since you don't have a distributor to connect plug wires to.

Now, it's just a matter of making certain the connectors are just plugged in for COP systems. The older 4.6s, of course, do need to have the plug wires connected to the correct coil terminals.
