This should help, firing order is counterclockwise, 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2.
Firing order V8 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 , If you bought wires try to stay away from generic universal wire sets, they are most always of very poor quality and of poor fitment. I would advise you to buy vehicle year and model specific wire set for proper fitment , also use the silicone dielectric grease compound for the spark plug wire boots, this will insure easy dis-assembly the next time you need to access your spark plugs... The rotation of the ignition rotor on most GM products is clockwise locate number one on the cap and follow in rotation with the firing order of the wires to the proper cylinders... Hope this helps...
