Default Denso replacement coil pack 2002 Ranger 2.3L

Help!
Purchased a new coil pack. Original wires
3-2
4-1 off the coil pack to the plugs.
The new Denso pack has a sticker suggesting the wires go,
2-3
1-4 ?
Do I replace the wires in the order they are or do I follow the Denso sticker suggestion reversing plug wires of 2 and 3?
Please Help!
Thanks

Doesn’t matter. These are waste spark coils. 1 and 4 are companion cylinders and so is 2 and 3. When cylinder 1 fires on the compression stroke, 4 fires on exhaust. When 4 is on compression,1 is on exhaust.

You will notice there are only three pins so there is no way to control individual cylinders firing.

Just wire up by the sticker so if you ever have to troubleshoot it will save you a few seconds determining which cylinder a plug end is connected to.
