Why did you change the coil mount? If not dead flat the out of plane (say one corner high or low) will crack coil when tightened down.
The longterm cracking on these that normally occurs after long periods of time is from temperature.
All new Two Ford Motocraft coil packs, Two Autozone Durolast. Got to be a short in the wireing or some thing else. Hopens with in 5 miles on test drive.
