changing from SOHC to DOHC is hard your engine might not be able to do that you might just have to put a crate engine with DOHC in it


So can I just swap the same motor with less miles n build that one up n I have to find after market parts for the saturn


What would I need to change my sohc to dohc if I just changed motor completly


Yea but u will need the ecu n wiring harness. But u might as well get a donor car
