  • OH NOEZ 01 sc2 potential build..

    ok since i know eventually it'll happen.. it's just a matter of time

    my plans

    bolt ons.. 5 spd swap.. nitrous? and maybe rear brake swap .. depending on how far i wanna go

    also first comes first.. I need a new suspension.. something fierce.. i'm not looking for to brake the bank.. as this whole thing is going to be a " budget" build. lol and will probably take a while to do most of it..

    I was thinking ebay intake with good filter ( or make one for myself depending one how everyone thinks of that if so what size piping should be used? looks like 3" is what the plastic is stock )
    obx header
    ?? for catback
    then a NX system.. or maybe whatever i find on here.. i'm open to used stuff as well as new

    keep in mind my forte is for the delta platform.. so any help you guys have would be appreciated

    currently my car only has a set of projectors



    i have a vue gauge cluster on the way but so far thats it

    what would be a good setup for shocks / springs? a small drop is ok but i'm looking for more handling then dropping it .. as i have my ion lowered.. and that doesn't always work nicely around here lol i'm not against a drop by any means though

    also do any gens cross over for suspension?

    I might be redoing the door inserts yellow.. just for fun

    also i plan on fixing the bastid ass hole in the driver side fender if anyone knows of a yellow 01 sc2 fender for sale.. hit me up .. DO WANT

    i'll probably not do rims.. less fall into some money..

    more importantly i need to get my SAI fixed and abs fixed as well since my ses and abs lights are on lol

    also does the twin intake cam mod do anything worth while for the 01 sc2s?

    sorry if some of this stuff have been answered.. i have a terrible time getting the search function to return any useful results when i'm looking for specific things

    <br />yea i got some work:bnr 2871, 3" CTI catback, lk9 intake manifold, some catless dp, zzp rod, weisco pistons, zzp valve springs, bdcustomz intake and charge piping and some other shiznit

      All the S-Series suspension parts swap for all generations. The twin intake cam mod only really does anything with some sort of tuning (SAFC or better),not overly worth it on a 3g head either.

        yea not going to be anything crazy.. just something to make it fun and quicker lol my ion is for the fast lol

        i just wanna make the sc2 not upsetting to drive lol

        and thanks lonehunter thats what i thought about the suspension but i didnt want to assume

        yea i'm not looking to go with any crazy wiring or tuning which running a wet shot 35-75 shot should be ok on stock right? i was figuring around 200 whp would be pretty quick given the weight of the car but with nitrous I could not have to waste gas all the time lol

          Re: OH NOEZ 01 sc2 potential build..

          SAFC2 + Cams (not twin intake cam) + lowering springs (whatever you want) and KYB GR2's + Nitrous = Fun ride. That plus a possible decking of the head and no spray is all my build will ever consist of. At least on a turd. Don't forget intake and exhaust too.

              Re: OH NOEZ 01 sc2 potential build..

              imo my first mod would be to get a 2g head, rebuilt it, deck it .050 bringing the compression up to about 10.3:1 (will run mid 15'sish) and put that on there with a set of mild cams and an safc2.

              while everythings off, get an intake, exhaust and catback and throw that on as well. you can never go wrongs with the ihe mod.

              bigger injectors also would help. 24lb/hr works.

              3rd gen head is a freak show and most people would never touch one. the whole list of things i told u to do is what i did to my project when i did my mild build a while back, and i loved it. lol.

                Um a deck wouldn't bring the cr up thay high.

                An safc would be better for the minor build before cams. With cams I would not recommend a safc.

                And lastly the last thing you need on a n/a saturn is bigger injectors bud

                  Re: OH NOEZ 01 sc2 potential build..

                  remember this is a budget build and nothing all out.. i dont want cams as this is my DD and will stay that.. lol what would you guys think full bolt ons + a 50 shot would run whp wise?

                  thats fine that no one wants to touch a 3rd gen head lol as i dont plan on doing anything with it .. the only reason why im mentioned the twin intake cam mod was for ability to do with with no tuning

                  the most cost effective route is bolt ons and nitrous and i would doubt i'd even use the nitrous all that much either ..

                    Re: OH NOEZ 01 sc2 potential build..

                    i 100% agree with doing 5bolt swap just cuz there are so many more easily accessible bolt ons/parts for those motors, and they're better, plus if you just look at the exhaust ports on a 3g head it's sad (thats why i did 5bolt on my 02)

                    i dyno'd my 100% stock 5bolt 02sc2 at 119WHP and that was with kinda shitty plugs... I/H/E will prolly only net you 20WHP but will be better for the nitrous...

                    what i would do if i were you...

                    intake
                    header
                    2.25"-2.5" exhaust
                    50 shot nitrous
                    safcII (pay for dyno tune)

                    as for getting 200whp out of that set up... u might be close but it will deff need a tuning

                      wow saturn under rated a car before the redline lol

                      blargh.. wiring is not my forte lol 180-200 i figure would be quick enough on a 2400-2600 lb car

                        Re: OH NOEZ 01 sc2 potential build..

                        I could help you out with the wiring if you needed. Intake, Header, Exhaust (2.25 full exhaust, did the loud dd for a bit, it sucks after a while) and suspension, then enjoy. Throw the rest of the money at the Ion. Close to what I have done with the wagon at the moment (except the exhaust which is in the works) and it's nice for everyday driving. Gets up and moves well, sporty in the corners and not too harsh of a ride. I'd almost say leave the nitrous out, one less thing to worry about going wrong. Though adding nitrous to the Ion along with the Procharger could be interesting.

                          one of them will get nitrous.. lol i've thought about doing it on the ion.. alot.. a 50 shot or a 35 shot .. just for a bit extra in the low end

                          ion is almost done.. just gotta get the head ported and put together.. .. then put on .. and get a damn LSJ belt setup.. else i'm going turbo lol

                          i dont want a loud dd anymore though.. i did that with the ion.. and it got tiring.. i want no drone.. so i gotta figure out wtf to do

                          might just do CAI and nitrous on the sc2, 5 spd swap and call it a day lol then transfer the nitrous to the 2.4 lol

                            ok so it looks like it's being modified a bit


                            bomz racing CAI with... i forget what brand filter i have here lol
                            50 shot of nitrous
                            maybe remote opener

                            kyb struts
                            H&r sports (looking for best handling/ decent ride not looking for big drop, judging by the suspension thread it seems these are the best balance after progress)

                            then 5 spd swap with stock clutch flywheel and welded diff..

                            cost effective and will give me just about everything i need without risking the motor all that much

                            more pep.. better handling.. still stock quiet and better mpg lol

                            how does everyone else feel about this?

                            this is a budget "build" and something simple.. just trying to make the car not miserable to drive compared to the ion lol

                            i figure that would put the whp around 175 or so.. which would be decent for the weight of the car and i could spend under 2k doing it and if i get some deals spend under 1k lol

                            not looking for it to be my race car.. just a reliable DD with a bit of fun when i want it
                            <br />yea i got some work:bnr 2871, 3" CTI catback, lk9 intake manifold, some catless dp, zzp rod, weisco pistons, zzp valve springs, bdcustomz intake and charge piping and some other shiznit

                              Sounds like a good list. If you're interested I have a tapered and edged 3G throttle body I've had laying around forever. No use for it since my coupe has a head swap. Also have a set of Eibach springs that Laura and I are sandblasting and refinishing, which we were going to post up for cheap.
