To make a long story short, my grandfather had owned a Solstice GXP which he liked to modify. He recently passed away, and I'm the one who is stuck trying to sell the misc items from the estate. Within the items, were a couple of Solstice parts which look to be ECUs (you'll have to bear with me I do 3000GTs, not Solstices) but don't know year or anything about them.

One has a part number 12619548 YRPT and tape on it that says 08-10 tuned only. No indication of who tuned it or anything so no idea on value or how I could find out what the actual tune is for. I'm assuming 08-10 based on the tape on it, and a forum post that indicated the YRPT was 08, but can't be sure of anything beyond that.

Also have a different one that I assume is a TCU or similar for an auto? Has a white label Siemens 5WK33551Al GM 24239402
*BK9402S73310201X* YNRY
It also has some blue writing on: 591-7237 0802021 on the side with the label, the side with the connectors has 591-7237 080204

Lastly, I have some kind of large thick book thing. The pages inside are all in perfect conidition, so hasn't been opened much (if ever) and the inside cover of it says Solstice Folio no. 0802 Edition limited to 1000 Copies.

Just trying to get some information and value on these things (as per the title) so we can get them sold and try to move on. Would rather sell them within the community as my grandfather was very fond of his GXP and would go to meets all over the country with it, so I'm sure he'd like it to stay within the community instead of posting it on eBay.

Be helpful if you posted VIN.

The 1st 1000 campaign was a Pontiac marketing gimmick used to generate excitement for the introduction of the 2006 Solstice. 1st 1000 Solstice's had 1st 1000 dash plaques but were otherwise identical to later 06's. Book prices vary depending on condition (and each 1st 1000 book corresponded with the VIN of the 1st 1000 vehicle.


This seller wanted $375 which seems kind of high.

The 1st piece is the ECM for an 08 or later. The tune inside can not be use it needs to be reflash.

Unfortunately I don't have the VIN number, I have my father looking through the files that we have to see if he can find one. Considering book is in basically unopened condition, I doubt it gets much better condition than this. Reasonable price would probably be somewhere around the 250-300 mark I assume? A search of the forum actually shows #802 was from Oregon and ended up being bought back by the dealer and parted out and such, so who knows.

I appreciate that. So it is still usable though for someone else, just not as a tuned unit? Not sure how flashing ECUs works on these cars, on my platform there is nothing to prevent you from swapping it into a different year car beyond the difference in connectors from one year to another.

The #802 you are referring to above was a 2009 Solstice coupe. The #802 referred to in your book of pictures is referring to a 2006 Pontiac Solstice Convertible, a part of the 1st 1000 Apprentice promotion.

See my post here for a better description of your book, message 4 of this thread. http://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/f11/first-1000-other-stuff-67028/

The VIN can be found on the lower portion of the driver side windshield. Reason I'm asking is you talk about it being a GXP but also talk about the 1st 1000 portfolio book. The portfolio book was only given to the first owners of the 2006 1st 1000 Solstices, and GXPs weren't available unti the 07 model year.

So posting the VIN would help us determine what year your car is because as of right now it sounds as if your father (BTW, condolenses) may have purchased the 1st 1000 portfolio book from a previous 1st 1000 owner.

We are still digging through paperwork to see if we can find a VIN for it, nothing so far. I assume it was a GXP as he did have it turbo charged, although I suppose he could've had it done later or that he bought the Book/Photographs later. This was one of the only Solstice items I found he still had, so until we find a VIN I'm stuck speculating. Here is a handful of pictures of the items:






I have been attempting to find pictures or receipts or similar on the car, but thus far to no avail. Unfortunately, all paper documents are in New York, and I'm at school in Tennessee trying to get this stuff sold, so I'm stuck waiting on other people's time table to find information.

Assuming he purchased the book second hand at one of the meets or off the internet or similar since I doubt he would have gone through the trouble of an 08+ ECU and turboing an 06 just to take it all back off and sell it. He had a bunch of other Solstice branded items and a pile of small parts and sensors which were thrown out/taken by other family members before I had a chance to get over to the estate and evaluate it all. Pity too, could've adapted several of those for my car :p

Basing this off of the assumption that he had an 08 and bought the book 2nd hand, we can then assume that the value of the ECU and TCU are no more than other factory units (which seems to be around 300 for the ECU and 100ish for the TCU?) and that the book is realistically less than the $375 on eBay?

I can tell you that the '08-'10 ECU will not work with earlier models.
