2002 SL1
Checkered Flag Increased Horsepower

I noticed a few threads in here dealing with horsepower. Most dealt with stripping weight
(some went so far as removing air-bags... bad idea).

Go to http://www.6thplanetusedparts.com/index.html.

Click the 'performance' tab. Want a twin-cam dual fuel injector engine in your SL1? They can build it for you. Go for the 'Wild' engine and you will def leave the neighborhood Honda 'racer' at the light.

You should know some people on this forum have bad experience with 6th planet. Especially with used engines...

Not another 6th planet thread. In my experience, if they get it right the first time, it'll be fine. If there's a problem, you're on your own. My experience with them was pretty bad and I'm not alone. OTOH with www.saturnautosalvage.com I ordered a cruise control module and they sent me a PCM. I called them and they sent the correct part out immediately.

2000 SC2
Default Re: Increased Horsepower

Just do a search here and at turbosaturnsaturns.net.

We received an engine with the rod cap nuts loosened. Destroyed the crank bearing surfaces at the first start up.

We recently bought a used 99 SC2 from someone who replaced the original engine with a 6th planet engine. The $1000 used engine burns more oil than gas.

Are those the same "perofrmance" engines many people who have been waiting years for? I know of one guy specifically who had one of these engines built over 2 years ago, he has yet to recieve it and Joey basically ignores the guy even though he pursued legal action. From what I've seen what these 6th planet engines could do, a first time engine builder could build a more powerful engine.
