Saturn SC2 Convertible/Chop Top via sawzall, & Deploying Airbag In The Glovebox!
This Saturn has a bad engine knock, and has been sitting in my garage for a year. Finally, I decided to do something fun with it... cut the roof off! At the end of the video, I removed the driver's air bag and set it in the glove box, wired up a battery to it, and deployed it.
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.
