Coil pack replacement Part Number????

Incredible how many different part numbers I'm seeing for MY 2002 S.
My current number is Beru 996 602 102 00 Beru# 0 040 100 021

Pelican shows a few (Some being "New Larger version")
996 602 101 01 - Smaller body
997 602 107 02 - Larger Body

Beru Site:
996 602 104 00
997 602 104 00

Has anyone recently replaced and what part number did you have success with??

Story: Replaced AOS a couple months back, on the test drive Flashing CEL with P0300, P0301 ++.CEL. Stopped car CEL went out Cleared codes.
Last week 700 mile road trip, Got the Flashing CEL with P0300, P0301 ++, Again light went out no issues
Pulled Right side bank coil packs and low and behold - 2 of 3 cracked. I'm just replacing all 6 but what part number works????

And Searching everywhere, I couldn't find any real definitive answer

I'd suggest you call Pelican and ask one of the salesman. They are VERY knowledgeable and will steer you in the right direction.

Use the newer ones with the "larger body"
they should come with the longer bolts

Gelbster and all, thanks for get back
This is what I was afraid of. I only checked right side coils and I didn't see any thing that would prevent using thicker body coils
I need to look at Left side to see if this pipe is there on Boxster. I now remember 1 coil being blocked from easy access

I have a 2001 "S" and yesterday I changed all (6) spark plugs. I had sufficient room to use the thicker coil packs if needed. In regard to the new coils use of a torx bolt that requires an E10 female torx socket. It's simple enough to go the a specialty hardware store and get cap bolts with a 7mm allen head

I just change my coil packs, plugs, and tubes. I can vouch for having enough clearance for the bigger coils. There are no obstructions. That 996 thread doesn't apply to us. There was one bolt that you couldn't get a ratchet on, but that was the same for old coil. I just used my socket wrapped in some rubber from a nitrile glove and a small vice grip and that did the trick.

What are the improvements to the coils since the 9x6 came out of the factory? Why thicker? Ie why not just go with the original style?

I had only pulled one bank and 2 of 3 were cracked
One had a crack into the body but both had cracking around the bolt hole sections
So the thicker design, I think, would be less prone to that. Otherwise I don't know if there is something electronic going on with the thicker

Also It appears a regular 8mm socket will work on these Torx bolts

Even though the plugs I pulled looked excellent after 25000 miles, while I'm in there made sense to replace them.
