2008 AURA XE
Information Saturn 1.9L engine history/heritage??

Hi, being new to Saturns, I am curious as to the engineering history and heritage of the 1.9L engine. Who was cheifly responsible for it's design? Years of production in original configuration and modified designs? Did GM use this engine in any other cars? Basically all the boring stuff.

Thanks,
Brian

Wow, according to that wikipedia article my engine was rated at only 80hp. I thought it seemed to be a little sluggish compared to other cars I've driven. But I'm perfectly happy with the gas mileage and that's the main reason I purchased it.

Anyone know the name of the chief design engineer of the 1.9L?

Thanks,
Brian

Search for the 'trivia' topics, some of which discuss drivetrain. Member 'LL0' claims to have worked with engineering, and 'Low Saturn' claims to own the wiki pictured I4. If you find answers post back to this thread.
