  • my sunoco project....

    this is my third saturn. previuos were 95 sc2(auto), 97 sl2(auto) and now this 97sl2 in a 5 speed. i bought it from a friend for a great price. initial plans were to strip it down sell some parts, throw the motor in my old 97 and make a few bucks. after drivin it for a few days it ran great, actually better than my old one and the 5 speed was WAY faster, so i decided to keep it. my friend thought it would be funny to cover the car in sunoco stickers, lol. here's the pics of the "rebuild"

    how i bought it




    some pics of the sticker removal process, took about 12 hours to do it.....

    oh look its green!!










    it needed a drivers fender and a hood, easily scored from the local yard....
    the stock manifold was cracked so i picked up a 92 header and threw it on
    out with the old


    in with the new



    aso gutted the stock airbox and blocked off the silencer hole and threw in a k&n filter

    Haha, that's great that you showed up here after buying that. Its been posted up on here a few times when it was for sale.

    Also with the stock airbox, that silencer hole is below the filter, you can just leave it open. You might get a little more air in actually.

      ya but it will be sucking hot air right from behind the rad. closing. off makes all the air come from behind the light. I also cut off the tube inside the bottom of the box.

                When I read the title I instantly thought "don't be the guy with the stickers......" Thank God you reversed the stickers. Good work!

                  I'll bet you helped him put the stickers on there, didn't you? lol. It doesn't look to bad at all. But you should have sprayed that header/manifold with some paint before throwing it on there. Rust=Eww. But oh well, good job none the less.

                        ya def took a while. its my daily driver, not really worried about the header bein a little rusty, i had to work on the dumb thing for hours just to get it in the car. two of the studs were broken and badly rusted into it, same with the 02 sensor. i am done working on that dumb header, lol.

                          haha, i saw this posted up on TST a few months ago. Glad to see it getting some proper work done to it. You got any plans for it, or just doing a few things and keeping it a DD.

                              i was thinking about picking up a set of lowering springs, maybe some OEM alloys, wing, fogs, and some tint. other than that just gonna drive it. its a fun little car, but my modding funds are mainly for the bike and s2000, lol.
