That is how the plug wires should be, That way if a coil fails, you don't lose a cylinder. There's another reason, but I can't remember it right at the moment.
Look carefully after taking off the tank for the booster. If you don't have a Booster, get one, they're cheap. I mount mine right in front of the toolbox on the bottom of the backbone.
I've seen them mounted all over the place. It creates heat, so it needs to be in windpath of sorts.
