Congratulations on a nearly complete drive train swap!

I did my swap 3 years ago, and you reminded me of all the little (and big) challenges along the way.

Happy trails!

...
My 96 SL2 and 98 SL1 have joined together to become one. So I guess I now have a 1996/8
SL1-2.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Congratulations on getting your Saturn running.

The BCM contains the stored odometer mileage.

Passlock is in the lock housing, not the lock proper. All you need to do is run the security reset AFTER you have replaced BOTH the PCM and BCM. That should get them synced. As it now runs you did what needed to be done.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The car starts and runs!! : So, after reading a bunch of random information on the internet, much of it on this forum, I decided to try some things before looking into getting the pcm reprogrammed. What worked in the end was, with the SC1's pcm and bcm, I turned the key to the run position, left it for 10 minutes while the security light blinked, and when the light shut off (which was almost exactly at the ten minute mark), I turned the key off, and did it again. I did it three times, and after shutting it off on the third time, I tried to start the car. The security light did not blink at all and the car immediately started, stayed running without a problem and has started multiple times.

Other random notes: The car shows the low miles from the SC1 engine, I assume because both the pcm and the bcm are in the new body. The SC1 that all of this came from had no features at all (crank windows, no running lights, no electric locks, nothing.) All of those things now work on the SC2 body even though I am using the pcm and bcm from the other car, as does the sunroof. I am assuming the cruise control will not but haven't tried it since I cannot yet attempt to drive the car, but we'll see. Every single wire and connector matches up on both cars, the colors of the wires match and everything, with a few exceptions that had to be modified and the one to the power steering left off (just in case anyone reads this thread with the intention of doing a swap themselves and wants to know!).

Thank you all again for your help and input. I still have to change the throttle cable (they are two different lengths), the shifter cable, bleed the brakes, and fix the exhaust or have a new one made (mine was destroyed in the accident and the SC2 does not match what comes off the cradle of the SC1). I will post again when everything is complete and the car is driving!

Happy New Year too all!
The difference between the SOHC exhaust and DOHC exhaust are the manifold head pipe. After the converter, the DOHC has a resonator(which can remain in the system with the SOHC without ill-effects to performance or economy). Once you are past the resonator, the pipes, hangers, and even the muffler are identical.

You can use this website for seeing the exhaust system diagram.

Good to know, thanks! I'm a big fan of the Pontiac Torrent gauge set.

I do a fair amount of night time driving and the red lit needles / numbers is easy on the eyes. I just have to mask off the traction control light and remember to run a code scanner on it occasionally
