I would be suspicious of a bad coil pack even if it is new. Cylinders #1 and #6 are actually fired (sparked) by the same coil. Your coil pack is a set of three coils and two cylinders get spark in unison even though they are on their power stroke at opposite times. In this case #1 and #6 are getting nothing. So test for spark at the coil pack for those two cylinders. I bet that part of the coil is dead. I hope this helps.
