I don't know - it looks like it is for the LSJ which is nearly identical to the LK9 in many respects. The actual Saab part No. is 93184078, $4.86 each at Saabsite for 1 (you need eight), for the 2003 9-3SS B207L.
Or you could find out the length, diameter and thread pitch and look for ARP fasteners that will do it. Some Cobalt SS guys use ARP 203-2802 (set of 8 flywheel bolts) and some say 209-2801. ARP states:
The flywheel bolt kit we list for the Vauxhall/Opel has the same dimensions you need (M10 x 1.25 x 25mm) but I'm not clear as to how tall the head can be. This bolt will have a head height of just under a .250". If you think this will work the part number for a set of eight of those bolts is 209-2801.

The Opel used the LK9. This engine is known as B207 when used by Saab and Z20NET by Opel for use in the Vectra C and Signum.

LK9 is a turbocharged 2.0 L— 1,998 cc (121.9 cu in)—version of the L850 (86 mm bore) series ECOTEC utilizing an all new reinforced sand cast aluminum cylinder head and reinforced internal components. This version of the engine also has Saab's Direct Ignition system and in Saab vehicles features Saab's Trionic 8 engine management system as well as a revised valve train. The timing chain and timing gears are also new. The reinforcements, turbocharging, internals and such were developed by GM Powertrain Sweden. It features an 86 millimetres (3.4 in) bore and stroke and a 9.5:1 compression ratio. Power is 210 horsepower (160 kW) at 5300 rpm and 221 lb·ft (300 N·m) of torque at 2500 rpm. Maximum boost is 12.3 psi (0.85 bar).

2003–2012 Saab 9-3
2003–2008 Opel Vectra
2006–2010 Cadillac BLS

Is there any reason to use the ARP ones?

I am content with the stock ones if that is okay.

So, I have this now.

This is looking like my final list of parts and supplies to order. Anything else? Do transmissions not have gaskets?

No, it takes around 2 qts. See your own February 2013 thread here where this was communicated to you in post #6. The best refill procedure (where you are only draining and then refilling with the same fluid or a compatible fluid) is to measure what you were able to drain out and replace with new fluid in that exact amount and then verify the level is right up to the bottom of the check or site hole on the side of the transmission. If the fluid is not up to that level via the check hole, then top off until it is. In any event, 1 liter or 1 quart will not be enough.

Ah, I don't know how I forgot about that. It's been something I wanted to do for a while. Then figured I should just hold off until the clutch starts slipping. I knew it would when I got he stage 2 tune with the upgraded turbo. Alright, I feel I have everything ready to order. I Hope labor from the Chevrolet dealership will not be too much... :confused:
