Default newby mistake, need help!

So in the process of tearing down my motor to take it to the builder i pulled the spark plug, plug in things off and forgot to mark what cylender they go to!
how do i know where they go now? does the fact that each side has one white plug and one black have any meaning or help me at all as to where they go?
thanks for any help

I'm assuming you are talking about the coilpacks.

If so don't worry about it. They are all the same!

black connectors towards back of the car. White towards the front.

everything is said here. the order of the packs themselves do not matter, the order of plugs do matter.

So, if I take all 4 plugs out and then put them back in different holes it'd be all screwed up?

You can put the spark plugs and coil paks back anywhere as they interchange. However, as mentioned, the connectors have to be white for the front packs and black for the rear packs.
