2002 SL1
Default SL1 engine swap?

So I was talking with my old man last night and he was saying hes gonna get ahold of an engine for us to rebuild. I told him that Id do a little research and say **** it, engine swap my saturn. My question is, what engines are options to fit in the engine bay? could I squeeze a V6 in there, or would I be limited to another 4 banger? And if so are there any bolt on options?

I think a L67/L32 swap with a 5 speed would be a blast. I don't know the OAL difference is between the LS4 and the L67, but I'd assume the L67 is shorter being that it's a V6. I think the additional space would help.

You are only limited by your imagination, bank account and fabrication skills. It helps to have a welder handy too.

The following swaps into an Saturn S Series have been done: V8 rwd and fwd (as in the last post), Honda K series drive train, a supercharged 2.0 from a Saturn Ion, a 3800 GM, a Volkswagen TDI...... I'm sure the list goes on.

Good luck and let us know what you come up with

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

We have a Lincoln MKT in the family. Basically a tarted up Ford Flex. It has the 355 HP V6 Ecoboost engine and all wheel drive. Would be cool to have in an S Series.
