1999 SL2
1998 SC2
Default Re: Engine Swap 1995 Saturn SL2

So there is this swap guide:
http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88699

I think your target years for a full engine swap would be 92-98. Once you get to '99 the head changes including the exhaust manifold.

You may want to keep your old exhaust manifold. The new one may not bolt to your downpipe. You definitely want to keep your old aluminum cam cover.

Others with more direct experience may chime in.

If it was me I'd get a junkyard motor or rebuild what I've got. You are paying a premium on eBay. $1000 for a Saturn motor when you can buy a whole car for $500?
