Beautiful! Was just thinking we needed a car community. This is the only reason I'm against electric cars. I would miss that deep-throaty roar of a strong engine.

Amazing!

Now get a job at Ford and show them how to do it right. I just had to take my car in for the fourth time because of an engine misfire, and it's not even five years old yet.

Had a 71 spider that had a 3.5 gal tank and ran like a champ. That was 27 years later, but bought it from a mechanic named Juan. Great car till trips out of town. Couldn't get far before fill up, but gas was around a buck then.

Most upvotes in less than a day. Maybe a car page is in order?

That'd be cool. I may post more myself, just have to prep for the incoming hate. Deep breaths, deep breaths

Exhaust manifold forward transverse 4 banger, MacPherson struts, appears to have a timing belt cover...some sort of newer Honda?

If this were a Volvo I'd think it be a five banger....

Haters gonna hate. It's a Saturn, like I'm not prepared for your lip

Tell us more. Total rebuild? What make and model?

Don't laugh - It's a 96 Saturn SL2. Drove it to college and it's the first car my son remembers so I've kept it. And put 5 grand in it. That part you can laugh at. I've blown a lot of engines so for the most part it's stock with intake/exhaust work, has a nostril in the front bumper for 'ram' air and loads of the bolt-ons replaced. It was built for sound quality competition so the focus is on the electronic/security systems. The car inside and out follows the same red/wht/blue theme. Thanks a lot for asking

The twin cam LL0 is not a bad design and did not have the casting flaws that the SOHC motor did. Is it possible to update that block to the 1999 style roller cam and lifters?

LibtardsAreTrash [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0

It's possible I guess but it's not meant for speed or anything. My other vehicle is fast enough to get me killed. This one is for sound competition and just cruising form time to time.

Saturn S Series 00 - 02 is my guess

I cant even tell what this is, a transverse 4 banger with the intake between the firewall and engine....a Honda?

no laughing. it takes dedication to fix up a Ferrari the same as a Saturn. I respect the effort. But yeah 5 grand, you could buy a 10 year newer Corolla with that money. Its sentimental though.

2
LibtardsAreTrash [S] 2 points ago +2 / -0

You haven't seen the rest of the car, kinda tough to judge if I made a good financial decision I'd say. It's not grandma's Saturn. As far as the Corolla, if I wanted a bitch car I'd buy a miata or a z.

If you buy a newer car though you'll have no money for moding. That's actually why a lot of people by the lower HP turbo/V6 versions of mustangs or challengers because then they'll still have money to mod it and customize it. When you get the V8 models you're spending twice the money and usually don't start doing serious mods until it's paid off after 5 or 6 years.

No laugh, the styling of the S series was very nice for the time and still eye-catching today in the world of samey bimbo boxes. 1995-96 SC2 are very nice, very much comparable to the Mazda/Ford MX6/Probe of the same era.

Yeah but you have to admit most of the 90s cars were a bit too rounded. For me anyway. This one has been lowered and a few extra things and with everything so boxy now like you're saying it does stand out well.

No strut pillar brace?

LibtardsAreTrash [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0

No, I don't drive it in a way to need it (does look cool though) and the lowering and wheel size combo make for an amazing ride anyway. No kidding, the closest car I've ever had to driving like this one was a 93 rx7 r2, and with that one being rwd it had a tendency to slide if gassed around corners. The audio equipment and 2nd battery in the trunk also help a great deal with balancing.

Not gonna lie I wouldn't mind having one of those Saturn's. And honestly you'd probably be better off with the factory air intake

How did you paint the fender and shock bolts white without them getting all gnarly the first time you tighten them with a socket?

1
LibtardsAreTrash [S] 1 point ago +2 / -1

Considering what the bolts are for it is likely they will never be fooled with so it doesn't matter. When I do booger one up I use a fantastic stripper by kwik-strip that cleans the surface to the metal in usually one application then I just repaint the bolts by hand after reinstallation. I use oil based paints on surfaces I may have to work with so the surfaces are pretty resilient to begin with and easily cleaned without worries. In this case I've used rustoleum for metal.
