Saturn Ion Redline 251WHP and 232 ft. lbs. The 3" catless Exhaust held it back a bit (no back pressure) and the tune is running slightly lean. Yes, I'm aware that a 3" catless Exhaust is a little too big for the current mods (listed below). I bought it because I have future plans to put some good work into the motor; hopefully sooner than later.

03 saturn ion 2 mods DIY
my apologies, my audio didn't do justice to the sound of the Exhaust. straight pipe, no resonator...resonator
made into muffler!!! is better than cherry bomb Exhaust and a good way to save you money.try it
; ) don't hate-appreciate. lol!
fog lights and f1 style brake lights are also DIY wiring. wheels painted
black with 1 1/2 in. wheel spacers for that old school wide stance look.
2003 Saturn Ion that won't start in cold weather
Documenting my attempt to use a fix I found on the internet to resolve an
issue that plagues 2003-2004 Saturn Ions. The models in this year can have
difficulty starting in cold weather. At first it was pretty sporadic for
me but this year it was almost constant.
In the video I replace the ignition switch which actually ended up
resolving my problem. I guess there is a lubricant in this switch that
SHOULDN'T harden in cold weather but the ones that shipped in the cars of
these years do. Total cost $29.99 and about 30 minutes of time.
The specific symptoms you will see with this issue are (usually in cold
weather) you will try to start the car and it might crank a couple times
but then die. When you try to start it again you will hear a short fire
but then it stops. This is because the security system has kicked in and
shut off fuel to the vehicle for 10 minutes. After you wait 10 minutes you
can try to start it again. This cycle can happen multiple times (at its
worst I would have to go almost an hour of doing this).
Once you replace the part you may have to reset the security (passlock).
This is done by turning the key to start (but it won't) and then leaving it
in the run position until the lock light in the dash quits blinking (about
10 minutes). You then do this again (again waiting 10 minutes) and finally
a THIRD time (waiting another 10 minutes). After the third attempt you
turn the key to OFF and wait 30 seconds (this waiting is important I am
told!). It should then fire up.
Be sure to watch this on the Web if you can as I have a lot of in-video
comments to help!
E85 Saturn Ion Redline FIRST START-UP 2005
Honestly went to Kwik Trip... Put in E85. Swapped injectors on their lot,
swapped the tune using HPTuners. And this was it's very first crank over.
Runs great. Drove it home no problems. Now to start tuning!!!
Rakes Performance Tuning FTW!!!
