Do you have the links for the dash light changing and the antenna mod? There's nothing on the original post.

Hence I said do a search. It's kind of a lesson in the search function. Haha. PM me, and I will forward the dash light instructions to you. I haven't put them in the how-to yet. Not sure how much will be relevant for your year, but it will give you a place to start. The antenna mod won't work on your car I believe.

Yes, I found out a few years ago that Honda/Integra 4 lugs are the same size for Saturns, except the hub size on the Honda is a bit bigger. Those rings fix that problem though.

nope our hubs are a bit bigger, meaning ull have to bore out the hub a smudge. it shouldn't hurt the wheel any... best to take them to a machine shop.

Really? I was sure it was the other way around. It was a few years ago, I was going to buy some rims a guy had on his honda, and everyone said they would fit I just had to get the centric rings or whatever they're called.

I finally did this to my car. It was real easy, just used a relay, little bit of wire, and 4 wire taps. Works great, lots more light at night.

New free mod. I fried the board that the switch for the fog lights is on. I was trying to figure out a way to make it so the fogs come on with the parking lights, stay on with low beams, and stay on with high beams. I finally got around to poking around the relay, and realized if you jump the pins on the left (86 & 87?) it will accomplish this. I just used a staple from the office at my work.

Ya edit to this. I realized that the parking lights were powering the fogs, so they were really dim. Just ground the bottom right relay leg, and it bypasses the switch. The fogs are on whenever the parking lights are on, even if the brights are on. The fog light indicator light even works, the button just doesn't do anything.

The DRL mod is easy, 5 min job. Search for DRL disable and you will find the drawings and pictures. I do not know if the 98 SC2 will accept the antenna trick. You can search for that also and there are pictures also.

At some point I will be getting around to hiding my antenna. If it won't go in the a-pillar, I know of 2nd gen coupe guys that have hidden it inside the fender, so there's options.

I have a 2nd gen coupe, and the antenna fit in my a pillar just fine. Search for phantom antenna, maybe.
