Remove the plastic intake and pull your airbox out and you can squeeze your arm in under the intake manifold and reach the top of the ignition coil.

Make sure the car is stone cold, or the metal hot water hose can make it difficult.

I found the best way to do it is:
as above
1: remove airbox (2 mins)
2: remove 1 lead at a time
3: feed the cable through, locate its home with arm(hard) and poke an extension bar/wooden dowl through the manifold and press the lead on.
4: do the remainder!
5: reinstall the airbox (with a bit of silicon spray around the rubber bits)
6: bobs ya sis

Ive found its easier just to rip all the leads off and put them back on in order. Leads 1,2,6 group together inbetween the intake runners, and leads 3,4,5 go through the last pair of runners.

Heres a dodgy pic i did up with regards to the coil & leads
