Ecotec LSJ powered 95 Saturn SC2
My 95 Saturn SC2 with a 2005 Saturn Ion redline engine and trans swap.
Current mods are ZZP front mount heat exchanger, ZZP dual pass endplate,
ZZP stage 1 pcm, Cobalt addictions shorty header with 3 inch down pipe and
2.5 inch full Exhaust. None of this
would have been possible without the help of my best friend Lee Alt. He is
the owner of Lees garage and a master fabricator and welder. This guy could
build his own space shuttle from scrap parts.

For those with concerns to back pressure and valve burning, take a look:
00-02 Saturn S-Series headliner removal
In this video I show you how the headliner board is removed from a 2002
Saturn SL2. This is part of the process to either replace the fabric on the
board or to work on the sunroof.
I unfortunately did not record the replacement of the fabric because I
butchered the install but there are many videos out there that will show
you how. The Sunroof is a project come spring.
2001 Saturn SC 5spd Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2001 Saturn SC 5 spd. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
