OP-Great instructions, by the way!
Glad it was able to help you.
BTW you do not have a rotor you have a coil pack so you dont have to worry about the rotor!

Firing order

Great post, but you gave the lower right location on the distributor to both the number two and the number three plug wires and my cap is numbered but not in the same manner as your instructions. If distributor rotates clockwise I have number one in the top right, below that there's number 2, lower left is number 4 (not 3) then number 3 at upper left. Which makes me think something's wrong here and I confirmed and labeled my routing before disassembling or reading your post. Can you give me a hollar back with your decision on which is the correct way? Please, and much abliged for all the otherwise seemingly helpful info.

Im a noob too and I have question about my 2003 2.7 and why does this year model does not have the traditional plug wires like what is pictured above. Mine has individual ignition coils on each cylinder but no plug wires. These plug wires look as if they are tied into a wiring harness??

tacosoup89 your truck's ignition is controlled by a computer, TDI -Toyota Direct Ignition, a distributor-less ignition system. Since you have no distributor, you are not going to have; cap, rotor, and spark plug wires. You are just going to have electrical wiring, from the computer, going to each ignition coil that sits on top of each spark plug.
