I'm not sure if there's one out there, but im sure you can build on up yourself but more then likely the transmission isnt made to handle more then 180 hp at most.


Hahaha. yeah I think Ill stick with what I got. It already burns out at stoplights with only an air intake on it.


there are turbo's out there that will work... only problem there are no tuning for the ecotec moters. and there is no plan to do it, but it is possable to do it,. just takes time and money.


no its deff not hard at all if u have the plastic manifold then u need a new one of those then u can get the turbo kit for 1g online.but then u can get the bolt on superchager and its 2g but it will give u up to 17 psi our motors can handle 14 stock so u want to get new pushrods and rolers and cams.go with platniums thats what i got but no turbo or superchager and you have to get a heder to


well its a good thing the saturn motors before 1999 are all non ecotec and im pretty sure all s-series engines were non ecotec


All saturn motors, before 2002 or so, were basically designed in-house and are pretty distinct from most of the GM product. I believe that the Ecotec motor started in Saturn with the Ion.


Yea you can but it will take alot of money to do so. Right now you can get one on ebay for $500. It is a kit but you still have to do alot to the motor before you put it on. Also talk to people on the real forums of saturn... We can help you the better bc some of them have all ready done it...
