lacking your SM right
is how to wire those 3 coil packs.' at ICM
you pulled wires willly-nillly sure. posted here vast times

Firing order 1994 iszuzu trooper 3,2 sohc

its a V6
Order: 1-2-3-4-5-6 Distributorless Ignition System
outside usa , ive not a clue.
and i bet you are.

3,2, tells me (not USA) comma for decimals.was the clue.

EFI systems vary world wide)
the firing order on ours is per above, im not sure how many 3.2v6 are made world wide, with different crank /cams.
seems there are 3 if you read the wiki......

there is a gm v6 LG6 is 3.1L and isuzu v6 (x2) 3.2L
the real Isuzu is called 6VD1 engine
later years GM 4.3L
my guess is 6VD1 or W

and 6VD1W. twin cam. introduced in 1996 on troopers.

76 degree V 6's
per the wiki
The feature either a belt-driven SOHC or DOHC valvetrain. Later versions feature direct ignition as well as gasoline direct injection. These engines are notable for their early adoption of gasoline direct injection technology and also for their uncommon 75° cylinder head bank angle.

before i work on and engine i learn what is there first.
as you can see wide variances there are.
post country first. then if single or twin cams.

but the firing order is dictated by cam and crank geometries.
