Try getting a 383 stroker to put in it, it's a good motor nice and loud!

Without complications, a DOHC engine and manual trans from a similar year SL2. Anything else will be custom and add cost and complications. Wow, putting 4K into a '96 Saturn and your not done yet? Not sure I would have spent the money.

You want performance? Ditch the monster truck wheels, get a twin cam head, and boost the bitch.

it won't be anywhere as cheap or easy as upgrading a civic. there is not really a performance aftermarket for this car.
