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.
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.
Good Luck and Hope this helps you save some money. Spent about $60 total
doing this in tools and parts.

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.

This is how to change the starter in all Saturn S series cars. This can be
the SC1, SL1, SW1 and the SC2, SL2, and SW2. It's a pretty common problem
