"Daredevil" SL1 - '02 Saturn SL1

Hello from Wisconsin!

Hey guys, just saying hello. Found my way here from a Saturn forum, figured I'd get a log going and all that.

I guess I'll keep this short, I drive a 2002 Saturn SL1 5sp with a short ram intake and true hood scoop, that looks like a cake pan (because it is). I've been looking into fabbing up a lower profile one, but haven't gotten to do it yet. Also rolling on some super duper Hankook Ventus tires. I also have a ScanGauge2, and have decreed it to be the best piece of tech ever.

Pulled trip averages of 40+ a few times, but tank averages out to about 38 mpg between my short and slow work commute and long highway trips.

I will be doing quite the long road trip in less than a week, so I will then update all the info I have.

Welcome to the site fellow WIer. The SL is a very capable car. Good luck with it! Any mods planned?

Making a sleeker hoodscoop and freer flowing, yet legal exhaust.



This car is legit.

If money weren't such a factor I'd have a new front bumper and hood, from where the previous owner hit a deer. But even with the car in this condition I'm still getting 38+ on long trips.
