    I keep thinking about pulling my Saturn's tiny little 1.9L SOHC motor and dropping in an Ecotec :D DOn't know just think a Turbo Ecotec 2.2 in a first gen Saturn would be funny. Especially a SOHC one that looks like NOTHING.

    No. Its the family of engines used in the econo boxes and such. Its like "Vortec". The New Cobalts, Cavaliers, Saturns, Sunfires, and Saabs have them that I know of. The Cobalt SS has a 2.0L Supercharged Ecotec motor. I'd like to put a 2.2L one in my Satan(the N/A motor with about 10:1 compression). Going from about 90-100HP to 160(seems to be a generally attainable daily driver number) would be awesome.
