Default Coil packs

Ive been moding my 9-3 but am now looking to stage my auto 07 sc 2.0T with 3" dp and exhaust but I'm sure the coils are original with 100k to them . I can pick up a set of 4 new genuine saab gm 12787707 coils for $210. Is that a good price and should I pick them up in anticipation of failing coil once tuned or should the original coils be alright. Thanks

I understand to use genuine saab coils but the question is more geared to is that a good price and is my car likely to need them once tuned. I was looking at these https://www.neobrothers.co.uk/direct...20t-4622-p.asp coils as they are 210 for
A set if 4 shipped to the US

Yes, that's about $52 each shipped. Let us know how they turn out.

That's not a bad price. Better hurry though before the Trump 254% Soft Brexit Tariff takes effect.

The pic is a bit fuzzy, but it looks like it says Mitsubishi on the first pic like the correct part. Have you had a chance to try them out? That's a good price if genuine. Autozone no longer carries the genuine part. Tempted to buy from Neo Bros, but I'm afraid I won't get the Mitsubishi parts.

Country of manufacture? Look legit. Nice.

Neo brothers have been saab specialist for a long time,they're not likely going to supply coils which don't work with these cars..

As soon as I got a tune for the car at 115k miles my plugs and coils went out. The plugs continued to go out every 1000 miles of hard driving.
After 3 sets of plugs I noticed intake temps were a little high, pulled the maf sensor and the sensor on the intercooler piping that goes into the throttle body. Cleaned them with maf sensor cleaner and never misfired again and my temps were a lot more realistic.
I did buy 4 coils though a while back just in case I did need to replace them again and haven't needed to, every time I add power though I lower my plug gap. I'm currently running the stage 6 e85 tune from maptun with no problems oem plugs gapped at .028. for about 6,000 miles.

What do you mean by going out? Light knock? Under heavy load or just light driving? Could you confirm misfire with Torque app? Just trying to diagnose my own potential problem. Thanks.

Yeah at first it was under heavy load at around 4-5k rpms then gradually appeared more and more.
One of the family shops I go to they were able to see which cylinder misfired and how many times with their obd reader thing.
Though it wouldn't show them until I could get the check engine light on, but as soon as I got it to pop up it showed all of them.
I had random misfires in all 4 cylinders. So I ended up replacing the plugs and coils, but I'm pretty sure it was just from old plugs and dirty maf sensor.

Here is my advice from a 2.8 perspective. I did not replace my coils when I got a tune. I waited until they blew one at a time. Since tuning I have lost 2 coils and have replaced them with Autozone Duralast coils which are holding up great.

My reasoning was that I had the handheld device that can datalog already from buying the tune so if I had a coil go I could datalog, open the data file, and determine which coil blew. This has worked well for replacing two coils.

I went with Vermont Tuning and my programmer works with the EFILive software. Basically when I open the software I choose the E55 controller and it connects to the handheld controller. Then you can see the logged data and see which cylinder is misfiring. It will be very obvious.
