The Story

I’m a big Saturn guy and I’ve had a 99 sl2 for years, had some issues with it and before I fixed it I bought this 2006 Ion and it was a daily for a few years. I enjoyed the 10.4:1 compression and the VVT but eventually I wanted more power. So I supercharged my naturally aspirated 2.4 liter 4 cylinder LE5 Ecotec. I slapped on an Ion redline or cobalt SS Eaton M62 supercharger along with the water to air intake manifold, heat exchanger and bigger injectors among other mods.

I love cars just like you guys. I build Saturns and I like to bring a little bit of a different build to the scene.
