Coil packs are interchangeable. Cylinders go like this:

Tranny
3 4
1 2
Front

If your misfire doesn't follow the coilpack, check your plugs, and if they are ok, then you NEED to get a compression test. Also, with the engine running, pull off the oil fill cap and see if any puffs of smoke come out. If so, that's a sign of blowby, which can be caused by a cracked ringland.

Good luck.
