ignition coil connector wires, someone check color please

I need to know the position and color of the wires on the grey ignition coil 2 pin connector, so as to know which lead goes to which wire on the harness.

I need to know which wire on the connector is positive and which is negative, either by pin letter or physical location on the ignition coil terminal because I do not have the original connector so my wire colors are different.

Re: ignition coil connector wires, someone check color please

Yeah, I was actually able to figure it out on my own, dug up a complete wiring schematic from an old thread of mine, plus I got the other 4 wires for ignition wired up and only 2 were left and one was tach, and the other power, as for the location I googled that. Good news is I was able to check my repin of my ECU harness back to stock, every single wire is exactly where it should be, so in theory I won't have any drama when I try to fire it up tomorrow. (was forced to abandon my DIS swap attempt, due to the untimely demise of my DD, courtesy of lack of maintenance by the PO.
So basically I need my camaro yesterday, atm I am still in school (5 days a week), AND I just started working(3 days a week), car died literally the day before my first day of work. Hopefully all goes smooth tomorrow and she fires right up and I find the parts I need to finish making it road ready.
Thanks all for the replies though, time was crucial, was supposed to fire it today, but I need 3 new ECU harness pins, and there is absolutely nowhere to get something like that on a sunday, I am not even sure I know of a place that would carry them, fortunately my school has a **** ton of them around.
