SATURN engine switch

I am just messing around here and don't actually plan on doing any of this, i'm just looking for your opinions.

what engine would you switch into a 99 saturn sl2 that requires little to no modification to the body of the car. so something that could easily be switched in, powerful, and good gas mileage.

Keep the DOHC motor and Turbo it, much cheaper.

agreed.

I'm going to turbo my 2001 sl2

I've got the manifold/intercooler/turbocharger already.

what are you buying for it, and how much power are you planning on putting down?

I only want 225ish

I have the manifold which we modified, T3 .60 / .48, and an srt-4 i/c i had originally purchased for my daytona.

i am also looking into a megasquirt or at least a 5th injector as i am familiar with them

225 in a car weighing 2422 lbs. is quite respectable. i wish i had the dough for that. unfortunately i don't see myself dumping any seroius money into my car, since i'd rather just buy a mustang

Someone supposedly swapped in a 3800 Series II SC but there are no images .

Saturn Motorsports did a 2.2L Ecotec swap but that requires too much work and you're better off going turbo.
