    Saturn S-series Suspension - Lowering Springs

    There are a couple of options for lowering your 1991-2002 Saturn SL SL1 SL2 SC SC1 SC2 SW SW1 SW2 SWP models

    There are good aftermarket struts available from manufacturers like KYB and Monroe that can be combined with several options for lowering springs. This is also a great time to replace your strut mounts as well as they are likely worn out if they have high miles on them. This project will also generally require an alignment afterwards as well.

  • Deebs Build Saturn LL0 engine

    Deebs Build Saturn LL0 engine

    A "Deebs" build is a popular, all Saturn original parts, way to make a performance engine for the Saturn S-Series platform. These parts are easy to source parts that you could easily obtain from a junkyard or salvage yard ( car-part.com ) that should net modest performance gains without too much difficulty. This can replace a Single Cam ( SOHC ) or be used in place of the later generation Twin Cam ( DOHC ) with minimal additional parts. Generally a computer swap ( see PCM/BCM security relearn...

  • 3rd Gen SC2 SL2 Universal Window Switch Installation Guide

    3rd Gen SC2 SL2 Universal Window Switch Installation Guide

    Writeup courtesy of Megan SC2

    (*please trace the leads with a multi-meter. just trying my untested leads could damage your control board.) My 2002 SC2 power window switches have stopped working, AGAIN! I've cleaned the contacts before which helped but was never a great solution. I never had a way to restore the eroded metal on the contacts, and without fixing the contacts cleaning them was pointless. And who wants to take these things apart again? NOT ME! ...

  • Power Steering Kill Switch How-To

    Power Steering Kill Switch How-To

    Power Steering Kill Switch How-to: *Saturn S-series: Many of you remove the power steering systems all together and loop the lines to maximize road feel, but I, as well as some others give the excuse of parking and maybe not being man enough to deal with manual steering in the summer without air conditioning. The stock system uses an EVO solenoid to reduce the amount of power assist provided by the system as vehicle speed increases. *Starting with 0 mA at a dead stop and maximum assist and ...

    Non 3rd gen (DOHC)engine into 3rd gen (SOHC) car

    Just finished up swapping a 01 block/98 head into an 02 SL1 and I figure since there are only 3 years worth of engines that are a direct drop in fit I would document my findings. Applies to manual trans only, could almost certainly be made to work with an auto trans. 01 block 98 DOHC head 01 SL2 manual PCM (although any 00-02 DOHC manual PCM should work) this shouldn't be necessary if you're doing DOHC/DOHC 98 Intake Manifold, fuel rail and injectors 92 OEM 4-2-1 exhaust manifold (any 5 ...
