Default Ignition coil, plugs and wires

Back yet again :P 2007 Cruiser Touring 2.4 non turbo. I had a cylinder 3 misfire and it was about time for a tuneup anyway. I got a Delphi ignition coil, Denso wires and Bosch double iridium plugs all from Rock Auto. The wires don't seem to snap in place like normal and they kinda wiggle a bit like its not snug and not seated snug against the case. After many minutes of pushing them in hard i decided to try anyway and pretty sure all 4 misfire, shut it off immediately. Is there any special wires for the double iridium or any way to snap them in place

Get rid of the iridium plugs. Waste of money. Just run the copper core plugs that the owners manual calls for. As for the wires, I've never used that brand. Last time I put wires on mine, I used Autolite wires from Advance Auto Parts. They clicked on to the Champion plugs just fine.

Turns out they sent me the wrong coil, lesson learned ordering parts online. Threw in my old coil and runs like before but i did switch out the iridium plugs after reading the reviews. As a side note my single cylinder misfire went away when i replaced the PCV hose which had a large split in it so no coil even needed

funny...all Mitsubishi 4 cylinder style coil packs are really the same with the only difference in the harness connector.

No need for anyone responding to my comment ....
