    there is really nothing you can do w/ the s-series saturns in terms of "computer work".

    your best option is a dohc swap... and there is no kit (that I know of) for this either. once you swap the sohc out for a dohc, check out an SAFC II piggyback fuel controller to lean out the air/fuel mixture... that'll net you some horsepower and is probably the closest thing you can do in terms of "computer work".

      by george he does know some shit. Along with the safc, you'll want a wideband with some sort of datalogging ability. The main question is how far do you want to go powerwise. If it is just a little bit, then the dohc swap (engine, harness, everything) paired with an safc and a wbo2 (if you really wanted, but not much of a reason) and you're done. However, while you are swapping engines there is so much more you could do with everything going in and out of the car anyway. Ranging from mild NA (cams/header/intake/headwork/specific engine parts) to extreme turbo/super/nitro setups; only limitations are time/money/knowledge.

        yeh, pretty much with the work mentioned right there you can run you're quater miles in the mid 14's. which isn't too bad at all for a saturn. just start reading and searching around on here, you'll find a ton of useful info.
