Bore of Engine

175

Asked by May 31, 2012 at 03:17 PM about the 1995 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SL2 Sedan

Question type: Car Customization

I was thinking of machining my engine to increase the displacement. I would like to know about how much i could safely do. I have a 1.9L DOHC inline 4 inside of a Saturn. I want the car to be a sleeper so that's why i want to mod it.

Look at spending 3 grand, minimum. And buying another car to drive during the turds downtime. Get on sixthsphere.com, create an account and begin stage 1 of the learning process.

i would not recomend boring over .030" and to add strength to the block you might want to get it cryogenically treated
