Re: 2000 SL2 Wagon Build & Questions

1. Swap in a manual for better MPG, performance, and being able to ignore needing to cool the trans.

2. Keep stock rotors/drums and throw some Hawk HPS pads up front.

3. Not sure why you'd...

It's a V6. And Sam probably has 25yrs of experience prior to attempting this build.

Re: More of my dumb research...

I would start by finding a cheap Saturn that you can perform maintenance on and enjoy that as a beginning of your driving experience.

An SL2 or SC2 with 124hp and a 5 speed manual will be plenty...

Re: Anybody sell a rubber tow hitch cap?

That would be a nice thing to have. I'll try to poke around after work and find a source for these. The fallback option would be to get a Honda one to match the engine/trans.

Way to take the noob approach with your response. Changes between 1-2 model years could be the difference between Poor/Marginal ratings changing to Good in one category.

Re: Engine Swap Advice (2002-2001 SC2-1)

Have you ever tried to perform the PCM Passlock/mating procedure on a car before? I feel, as usual, you are commenting on something you don't have experience with.

Re: Engine Swap Advice (2002-2001 SC2-1)

There's no need to change the BCMs. The SC2 BCM will mate fine with the SC1 PCM.

No they will not. The VSS and Crank sensors/signals are the same for all the S-series.

Re: Engine Swap Advice (2002-2001 SC2-1)

Swapping the PCM from the SC1 to the SC2 is a trivial task.
There is a passlock procedure which can be found here:
