Default Firing order for 2oo1 4.6 Triton

I have a misfire in my number five cylinder and am trying to figure out the firing order or my engine so I can figure out which cylinder is number 5. When standing at the front of the truck looking at the engine does anyone know the cylinder layout so I can replace the coil an sparkplug.

take off the coil and pull out the spring spray it with wd40 and put it in up side down and put the coil back on and i would suggest replaceing all thge boots. when they crack they build moisture and it will cause the triton 4.6 and 5.4 to miss fire my dads truck did it last year cyl 4 mis fire is what the computer said
