1998 SL1
Default Turbo 1998 Sl1

I have this idea about taking my stock 98 sl1 and doing an engine swap to an 01 sl2 5 speed, I got a person in town with a blown motor and good trans willing to sell for like 100 bucks, but what would I need to do to get a good powerful engine, Im not looking to spend 5 grand though. I know I will need to rebuild the sl2 engine, but I wanted someone's opinion on what mods should be done. I want a higher rev limiter, as well as a decent amount of power with a cheap turbo setup.

Thanks a Bunch,
Alex

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

OldNuc has a point with SOHC -> DOHC swaps...if you aren't going to look up "how" and just ask a ton of questions that have already been asked a ton of times then swapping isn't for you. Just too many little change's. It's a fairly simple swap for '93-'98's if you stick with a '93-'98 motor (more challenging if going from a '93-'94 motor to a '95-'98 but still simpler than '99-'02 into '93-'98).

Mostly complete swap guide that so far hasn't been shut down: http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88699

If you want NA power then what's been nicknamed "Deebs Rebuild" has the parts list you need; following that can bump compression close to 11:1 which isn't much fun with boost so kinda go the opposite way it says to to lower compression if boost is the goal.

Research MegaSquirt. It's the cheapest standalone PCM I know of and you'll need a laptop as well to tune it; the stock PCM can't handle worthwhile boost numbers.

If you can't find what you want on SaturnFans, I'd be sorta surprised but can happen so head over to Sixthsphere.com where the "big boys" at least used to live (400+hp out of our little 1.9L DOHC...lol) and still has more performance related info than here.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
