1997 Camry Le 4cyl. Firing order help! plz

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry LE 4 cylinder


okay long story short, I was changing my spark plug wires because they are 7 years old. In the process of doing that, i totally forgot to label the wires or take a picture of the wiring order. I also forgot to change one wire at a time.
This caused me to mess up the order of wires on the coil pack of the engine.
I tried searching but for some odd reason Im getting mixed answers ???
alot of people on the internet are giving me all sorts of answers for the spark plug wire order.


here is the diagram i got from Autozone




another guy in this forum said it should be
Engine
---------------------------
cyl 1 2 3 4 |
---------------------------
(front)

Coil terminal locations:

----
3
2
4
1
---

(front of car)


i also got other diagrams that are different than what I just showed.
some diagrams and explanations have cylinders 2 and 3 switched around.
I am very confused right now because of the mixed answers, I've heard that cylinder 1 and 4 goes on the front coil pack, and cylinder 2 and 3 go to the rear coil pack. Does anyone have a service manual that can comfirm the stock coil terminal location??
this would help me soo much.

Thank you so much for reading

Is your engine 5sfe? it should be 1-3-4-2...the distributor cap should have number already.....if not took the top cover of the timing belt and align the camshaft on the right timing there you see it should be pointing on the sparkplug number 1 on the distributor cap. COUNTER CLOCK WISE on the distributor cap facing you follow
1-3-4-2

1-3-4-2

The coil pack connectors are numbered so just match the right cylinders to the coil connectors.

whatever information you have in first post is correct per plug to coils connections meaning as it is numbered on coil packs (from front of car toward windshield) 1-4-2-3 and these are cylinder numbers (from passenger side to driver side) as you match them.

However electronically speaking, ECU is firing them in order 1-3-4-2 (which is NOT how you wire them).
