  • 2nd attempt go fast sc2

    built my red 95sc2 with dished 91 pistons, and stock everything else, all new everything, then boosted it with log mani, k26 turbo, audi wastegate, FMIC, 2.5" downpipe/exhaust, 2.5" intercooler piping... etc... drove it for about 500 miles, with no tune thinking i was on 6lbs, put a gauge on it finally and found out i was running 14lbs... fast but fail, cracked head makes me sad... anyway... the 95 will now be a parts car for my new project that i just picked up yesterday for $500 cash money

    here are the pics thus far:

    reason it was only $500

    lady was askin 700 for the car, i got it for $500, told me it had 168000 miles on it, motor was blown/seized up, but the shell and everything was clean, so i get up there and battery is dead, so i hook cables up to it, and turn key on to check windows/locks/sunroof/mirrors etc... everything except the sunroof works flawlessly... then just for fun, i tried to start it, and it completely rotated no problem, so it's no seized up, look down at mileage and it has 116800 miles on it, like 50000 less than what she said and top end, AC, and all other components are still good including windage tray and oil pan etc

    plans for the car:

    picking up 98 sw2 5sp with 98k for $400 tomorrow (no title) runs/drives/cold AC/complete car, and pulling motor/tranny out and swapping it in so i can use the 02 sc2 as my DD, while i build everything else for it...

    holy shit, that's a great pickup for only $500! I wish I woulda been that lucky with my wagon.

    rear strut bar is useless on that car, I wouldn't bother. Looks like a great build.

                yea, long day for sure... 2 motor pulls, one motor install, and wire it up with correct sensors, clips etc... next weekend i tackle interior... dying seats black, swapping black carpet in, painting all interior panels black (properly), swede headliner/door panels, and possible rear speaker cover, and while carpet is out, i'll be running 4awg wire to trunk for battery relocation, and also RCA/remote wires from the cd player

                        Re: 2nd attempt go fast sc2

                        motor/tranny are in, everything is properly wired up to the motor with NO S.E.S. LIGHT!!! i figured i would have some kind of light on due to OBD I in a OBD II car, but apparently im a genius!!! if u have any questions about what i had to change/fix to get the motor/wiring to work, just shoot me a pm... everything is fully put together on the car, AC is good!!! it looks so GAY right now being that it's fully stock looking, seriously, the motor swap looks OEM and i hate it, can't wait for my DD to sell as this is now my DD while i build my other motor, and piece together turbo kit

                        will take some more pics later this week as i rip out interior, wire system/battery relocation, swap carpet, dye seats, paint panels, swede headliner/door panels

                          Re: 2nd attempt go fast sc2

                          little update...

                          made conversion harness for 1st gen saturn radio harness(so now i can transfer stereos from my truck to my saturn with plug and play)
                          stereo has been wired for system
                          in-dash flip screen installed
                          carpet swapped with a black carpet i had from my 97 coupe (im dying the original 02 carpet, but put the black in for the time being)

                          i should have the pics posted up tomorrow of my wiring job (done very cleanly i might add)

                          current stereo system is dual in-dash, stock speakers, kenwood KAC-8104D AMP and 1 KFC-W3012 12" sub, 4awg power wire, 200amp inline fuse, 4awg ground wire...

                          ordering kenwood KFC-P707 6.5" Components for up front, and KFC-1682IE 6.5" for the rear

                          also got my prosport gauges in water temp, oil psi, and boost, going to mount them in a triple pillar pod, and then mount my AEM wideband on my dash where stock srt4's have their boost gauge

                            stereo install+ temporary carpet change...

                            the filth

                            cleanliness/running wires

                            coming together

                            custom conversion harness to old style(so i didn't have to rewire my stereo, plus now it remains plug and play with my 94 gmc truck)

                            finished product

                            also has kenwood 12, kenwood 1000watt amp, and small sealed box in trunk, didn't take pics cuz it's a mess back there right now
