i think the orange paint is on the exhaust side and blue is intake side. i used to know this but now i cant remeber. but i do know that the tighter wound side of the coil goes on the spring seat.

I think you guys have got it a bit mixed up. Orange is Intake and Bule's Exhaust. Measure the wire diameter and spring hight, the shorter spring with the thicker wire should go for the Intake side.
