5.7lt vortec max firing order

Does any one know the firing order of a 99 sportstar with a 5.7lt vortec max?

Are all the plug wires off and if so has the motor been rotated?
Assuming that is the case, watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMg0S21Sjkw

Once you're done finding 0BTDC, use a black permanent marker to mark the distributor base and the block where base timing is at 10BTDC and also mark the inside of the distributor, where the rotor is pointing. Then, mark the outside of the distributor where the cap rests- put a mark at the #1 and #8 wire positions, so you'll be able to see the direction of rotation. Mark the plug wire boots, too. Makes cap replacement much easier and when the wires are changed again, mark the new ones.

I just had two wires off and mixed up. With the firing order I was able to figure out where they went. Thanks all.
