Happy Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

@Fdryer, my last post was kind of misleading lol... it's the Evolution that has the AWD I meant in my previous post. 😄 The Saturn Vue was the base model FWD four cylinder with no traction control...

Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

Well... so far it has less tire shredding torque than the Saturn Vue. I think the awd has a lot to do with it. It's much quicker once the boost kicks in and it hits 75 mph with no effort. It has...

Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

Well, bought 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR yesterday! 🎉 I don't know whether to celebrate or cry. I traded in the gutted Vue for $900 with 282,000 on it. I think 100,000 on a boosted setup was...

Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

Thanks! I'm leaning towards purchasing an Evo. I heard they're incredibly fun to modify. We will see how it goes. 😉🎉

Happy Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

Just an update on the turbo Vue. Just blew the motor. #2 piston cracked. I think the combination of a hot California day and poor 91 ACN took its toll on one of my injectors. It was a great car while...

Wrench Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

With a custom tune you're going to want a GM 2 or 3 bar map. When i spoke with Shaun, it sounds like i will be replacing my 1 bar map with a 3 bar map. For the aem FIC a factory 1 bar will work...

Post Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

I'm sure the CEL would still be there and it will not affect a manual. I found a shop that can replace the stock L61 ecm with a boost friendly one. I am working with them now. They are called Alpha...

Wrench Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

Attached are snap shots of my original base maps for the FIC-8 that I've used on my L61 build to get it up and running pre-tune. These are my base maps I've used and do require some tweaking. The...

Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

Well, I have every confidence this vehicle will be around another 200,000 miles so long as regular maintenance scheduling is kept up on it. I treat it rather well and I know the limits of what it...

Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

I would never turbocharge or supercharge a vehicle to improve MPG. The power has to come from somewhere and that's increased consumption. As far as MPG, there's 3 things to factor in:

o how the...

Re: 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

I boosted my motor at 179,000 and I'm at 208,000 right now. The engine handled everything fine with OEM stock internals at 8 psi. Without doing rods, pistons, and dropping in a new head, the turbo...

Wrench 2006 Saturn Vue L61 Turbo

I would like to preface this by saying a lot of people on here have wanted to turbocharge their saturn vue. What i will say is that it's completely possible, even without the support of HP tuners. ...
