Quick wiring question: Cps or Distributor

On my 96 the cps and distributor connectors are the same. Since i have both unplugged, and unlabeled, i do not know which connector on the harness to hook each one to. On the harness there is one connector near two injector wires, on the driver side. The other connector is more center in the engine bay. I would guess the first connector i mention is the distributor, the more centered connector the cps, but they are both long enough to reach either way and id hate to guess wrong.

Anyone with an assembled 5.2 care to take a quick look?

Thanks

both of those are sensor connectors (indicated by white/black and black/blue)

grey and black stripe to cam sensor (in distributor)

red and light green stripe to crank sensor
