13.113 @ 116.69 MPH!
This is just the in-car view.
I turned the adjustment on the wastegate 2 turns and the Boost shot up to 20+ PSI. I wasn't expecting this to happen so the car spun badly through first gear. I also short-shifted 3-4 by about 1000 RPM but I was able to run over 116 MPH.

Saturn S-Series Strut Replacement
Here I show how to remove and replace a strut and spring assembly on my
2002 Saturn SL2. Recently broke a spring which prompted me to replace not
only the spring but a worn out strut. I also went ahead and replaced the
rear strut assemblies as well since I was unsure when the last time they
were replaced(if at all).
After replacing these parts be sure to bring it to a shop to have an

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 Idle problem.mov
In this video we show you how to replace an idle air control solenoid and
clean the throttle body on a 1996 Saturn. This car was having a
excessively high idle. It would stay at 1500 RPM even though your foot was
not on the gas pedal. This was caused by carbon build up around and behind
the throttle body as well as a defective idle air control solenoid.
