          No real updates, about everyone involved in the discussion have moved on to other cars. My solution was to use an Ion subframe and lower control arms since I was already putting the engine and transmission in the SW2.

          • Does it bolt straight in as it’s rumored to? I seen an old S series I thought about Ecotec swapping...

              • Great to see that folks are still excited about this design project. Anyone with CAD skills want to take on further development? I would be willing to share my 3D files with the right person. The most awesome thing would be to develop a full sub-frame with integrated lower A-arm design. I definitely have the resources to have something like that fabricated.

                A few years ago Kim and I started DIYvan.com and sell/produce products for van up-fitters. We also carry 3M Thinsulate(TM) acoustic insulation engineered for vehicles. We want to hire a CAD tech to come work for us in Hood River, OR. We have full version of Creo and also do CNC programming for our in-house CNC router. We are a growing company. We are SAE, ASME and SEMA members. Great opportunity to come work for us in one of the best playgrounds in the country. Bring your Saturn and I'll help you work on it and we can further develop the A-arm kit.

                Reach out to me via DIYvan.com if interested.

                All the best,
                Hein

                • My 24 hours of Lemons buddy on the Product Design Saturn team have recently completed this project. I don't think they've raced the car yet with the new A-arms.

                  • Amazing. Hein, do you want my email to send those CAD files to? I'd come down there to work but I don't know enough.

                      I'm in for CAD work, can't move though.
                      It's not my fault, blame the radiation.
