They changed the Saturn cars alot in 1997 so I don't know good question? I would say yes but have no experience with this I would find someone who works on Saturn s alot and ask them.


The chassis was not altered for the 1991-1999 model years. The swap is 100% possible, and actually quite easy.

The sohc engines & dohc engines will not interchange, you'll have to stay with the sohc. Also the only years that will interchange are 91 - 94. They changed them in 95. Went thru this trying to find a motor for my 93. Good luck!
