write-up from 101 projects
Pelican Technical Article: Replacing Boxster Spark Plugs and Coils - 986 / 987

pedro also has a really good write up (this is the one i used)
http://www.pedrosgarage.com/Site_3/Change_Spark_Plugs_%26_Tubes.html

stateofidleness also did a write up on the forum here
Another Spark Plug DIY (for dummies)

essentially:
1. put the car in the air
2. remove the back wheel(s)
3. using an allen bit, remove the 2 bolts on the coil packs, remove the coil packs
4. remove the spark plug
5. install new plug (30 Nm, no anti-seize (according to some))
6. replace coil pack (10 Nm on the bolts)
repeat for each plug (there are obviously 6)

they should come "pre-gapped" no need to adjust. if you drop one (like i did) the proper gap is (i believe) .028
