I know I started another thread earlier on about this question. I was basically asking where the best price was in purchasing V6 coilpacks. However, I was looking for the new (updated) coils that are also used by the 2010 Cadillac SRX (2.8T's).

the only place i know is

http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/

The old part number was 12613057. This has been replaced by new part number 12629037 for both the SRX and all Saab V6 turbos.

are there any other websites that sell the new part (number) that is cheaper than $65.23 / coil ... because changing all 6 basically means $400 (without labor!)...

thanks!

Changing the coil packs is not that hard to do. Couple of wrenchs and about an hour and your done.

You have to remove top cover and also the rear coil packs are tight on space do it with a cold engine and a good tool box a experienced Saab mechanic can do it in 15 minutes and may be the way to go

Changing the coils is the same process as changing the plugs (which you might want to do while you're at it depending on your mileage....looks like you have a tune, so plugs would be a really good idea. Vtuner reccomends Denso's, which is what I used. They seem fine to me).

Here's a how to:

As far as a parts source, rock auto carries them for $41 each, plus shipping.

My vert is having the coil pack replaced (under warranty). Should the dealer also replace the plugs?
