Who races a saturn 4 door car?
My 1997 saturn SL1 converted. I took out the sohc and put in a dohc,
header, 2 & 1/2" Exhaust with Dynomax muffler. High voltage
MSD coils, 8.8 wires. It had a bored throttle body and true cold air
intake. I installed an egr block off plate and I used fuel injectors from a
Pontiac grand am gt. The transmission is the original 5 speed from the sohc
setup which has lower gearing. The car was dropped a little by cutting the
strut springs. The wheels are 16" aluminum. The guages were changed as well
with the motor swap as can be seen at 4:57 in the vid, so the readings are
accurate. Note how it pulls from 60 to 90mph. Pretty decent for a naturally
aspirated 4 cylinder.
My buddies Saturn SC2. Recently put the wheels on and wanted to lower the
car a bit more to get them fitting like they should. Wheels are Rota IKR's
17x9 +20 w/ 205/40 Kumho Ecsta ASX.

Saturn SL2 Valve Cover Gasket Replacement (DOHC)
This is a long one, Sorry, but it pretty much goes through the step by step
and shows some of my mistakes so you don't make them.
Also, verify that the gasket fits. If you have the time then I would
suggest bringing the valve cover in with you(assuming you bought it from a
local parts store) and make sure it fits before leaving. I must have gotten
one from a bad batch because the first one was too big. You will see that
in the video. The second try was the right(ish) one. apparently it is a
known problem that the molding process is incorrect for these gaskets but
luckily they are rubber so you can just remold it to fit.
Also a word of caution: at some point you may see me use carburetor cleaner
on the plastic valve cover. DO NOT use carburetor cleaner on the plastic.
The main ingredient is Acetone(which I also use to clean) and it has the
ability to melt the plastic. Use another solvent that is friendly to
plastics like mineral spirits.
Good Luck and Hope this helps you save some money. Spent about $60 total
doing this in tools and parts.

2008 Saturn SKY Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Saturn SKY. A sports car from Saturn? You've gotta be kidding! What would
the reliable but largely colorless Saturn brand do with a sports car?
What it has done with the Saturn Sky is change peoples minds about the
brand. The roadster has brought a level of excitement to Saturn that the
brand has never known, and it is converting import owners into Saturn
buyers. And the good news is, its not just another voluptuous body. Its
also a creditable sports car.
Welcome to our comprehensive Kelley Blue Book review of the Saturn Sky.
You can spend a lot more money on a sports car than you will on a Saturn
Sky, but we cant guarantee you that the smile they put on your face will be
any bigger. For more new car reviews, interviews and automotive news visit
