Turbo Saturn Drag Race - 13.259 @ 110.10 - 1.87 60'!
"Well, I believe that's a front wheel drive Saturn doing a pretty good job
against that pickup truck in the Dodge lane."
1st to 2nd was sloppy but still managed a 13.259. 12 second Saturn all day
if everything goes right :)!
96 Saturn SL2 Jumps, Big Air!
I think it was an SL2.. anyway, this car was brought up by a visitor. It is
a 5 speed. As you can hear, that 1.9 liter is not running on all cylinders,
but for a first time jumper these are some great jumps.

1997 Saturn SL2. Bone stock except for full magnaflow dual Exhaust seen in other video, run on mid-grade
gas, 115K miles and burns no oil. 0-60 in about 8 or 9 seconds. and the
total run was ~0-90. You cant make fun of these cars. They run
exceptionally good for 4 cylinders and beat many other 4 cylinders.
I have personally raced from dead stop and beat:
-2002 Ford Escape with the V6
-1998 Nissan Pathfinder with the V6
-2001 Chevy Cavalier with bodykit (not sure if it was a Z24 or not)
-1999 Honda Accord with a 4 cylinder
And the best: a 2004 Dodge Neon SRT4. He missed 2nd gear though so i wont
Everybody talks crap about Saturns and my friend use to too until he rode
in mine. He was very impressed at the acceleration and the responsiveness.
Yes I know its not a V6 or a V8. Yes i know i can get walked on by Camaro's, Firebird's, Mustang's, VTEC's, etc. Im not saying
I have the fastest car, Im jus showing what a saturn is capable of in case
people are wondering. ENJOY! DONT TALK TRASH ABOUT IT
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.
