1996 SC2
Happy New member

Hello, quick intro

DIY mechanic all out life, owned a Saturn when I was younger, brand new 2000 S series, ( don't remember details) never had to work on it back then.

But I just bought a 96 SC2 that needs some TLC, and help.
The guy I bought it from said it had a cracked head and sprayed oil all over on the exhaust side right by cylinder 1.

So I've got the car, checkout some compatibility list for the heads and will be picking up one from my local salvage yard soon.

I do have a quick question as I have found before Chilton and Haynes sometimes are not... accurate.

What are the torque specs (in ft lbs please) for the head bolts and valve cover bolts?

I fear with an aluminum block of stripping something.


Looking forward to this project.
