1996 SL1
Default What did you find at the Salvage Yard Today?

I figured I'd make a thread since something neat pops up every so often x)

94(iirc) SL2 with rear discs and ABS
Would the rear discs/ entire assembly, be worth taking off, or are they specifically tied to the ABS or gen specific?




...
'96 SL1 Originally the family car, passed on to me as my first. "Hellcat" 237,000+ miles and purring smooth.My Mug is filled with the lost souls of imports.
I Want SAAB Soccerballs. But they're 4x115

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Are those OEM foglamps on that 94? That would be a good snag for someone with a Gen1 sedan.

As far as disc brakes go, there are a lot of mixed reviews. I think the look better than drum but functionally I don't think you'd find much of a difference on these cars. From the pictures they appear to be in really good condition.

I don't believe you require the ABS for disc brakes to function and it's highly probable that they would swap onto any generation S Series. You need to grab the P-Brake cable too.

I found a '91 sedan with the oil-gauge instrument cluster and rear disk brakes, and the mirrors were white to match the car body.

Today at the pick & pull:
3 trans-side dogbones w/ bolts from gen 3
1 center cover for '98 alloy wheel including lugnut caps
12 more lugnut caps for '98 alloy wheels
14 lugnut caps for plastic wheel covers
6 Saturn fender emblems & 1 front emblem
1 front passenger floor mat
An unused Purolator oil filter
4 plastic wheel well splash panels (2 per side)
Many fasteners and pushpins
4 red plastic covers for positive battery terminal
Saturn maintenance & warranty booklets and namecards
An inkpen and a marker
A usb power supply for lighter socket

Also found a Michigan license plate but the attendant wouldn't let me keep it. A nice way to spend a sunny, nearly spring afternoon, and only costing $10.15. But the number of S Series cars at the yard is declining, and didn't see any gen 1.

Default Re: What did you find at the Salvage Yard Today?

Found myself a used wiper motor assembly, last week, and changed it out. I think I found the ONE thing, that is NOT very easy to service.

I had to pull the crash pad, to get to two nuts on the INSIDE of the firewall, to pull the wiper trans, to get clearance to remove the motor assembly.

Found a high performance Saturn at the salvage yard this weekend. Hot air intake, strut bar, dirty sock, probably corvette fast.

1995 SC2
Default Re: What did you find at the Salvage Yard Today?

With a very lean curb weight of about 2,300 lbs, a stock Twin Cam/5-speed can break high 15s, in the -mile. If you look at the Corvette specs of the C4s from the early 1990s, you will see that the 1st Gen SCs were actually able to keep up with both Camaros and Mustangs. They could certainly drop the jaw of a Vette driver, as the quickest Vettes in that era REQUIRED a $50,000 "ZR1" engine option.

https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...roduction.html

As Quoted: "1991 Chevrolet Corvette L98 5.3 13.9
1991 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster 5.6 14.1"

"1992 Saturn Coupe SC 8.6 16.5"(And that is likely with the automatic 4-speed, as I run a 17.2 in the -mile with a bad set of rings, bad valve stem seals, and a very large rate of oil consumption to the tune of 1qt/100miles)

As calculated by ideal conditions, an SC2 has the potential to run a 15.59 @ 86.66mph

http://www.wallaceracing.com/et-hp-mph.php

How a car is geared will affect the ETs, but will NOT affect trap speeds. The term "drag", in drag racing, is in reference to aerodynamic drag. HP translates to top speed, amd is affected by curb weight as well as coefficient of drag.

Super cars will hit their top speeds by one of the following methods:
Gear-Limited = Car can not go any faster, due to hitting maximum allowed engine RPM in top gear
Electronically-Limited = Car can not go any faster due to PCM programming restrictions in the engine management software.
Drag-Limited = Car does not have the amount of engine horsepower to overcome the negative effects of wind resistance and downforce drag on the car.
