Saturn Sky with a 2JZ-GTE

2008 Saturn Sky with a 2JZ-GTE inline-six

Paul Clark owns a very unique 2008 Saturn Sky Red Line. The factory 2.0 L LNF turbo inline-four is no longer under the hood. Instead you will find a 3.0 L 2JZ-GTE inline-six from a Toyota Aristo. The inline-six includes forged internals, 2000 cc injectors, ProEFI system, and BorgWarner S366 twin scroll turbocharger. It makes 520 horsepower to the wheels on low boost (13 psi). The factory Aisin AR5 five-speed manual transmission was kept thanks to a R154 bell housing, ACT HD 7M-GTE pressure plate and custom splined ceramic clutch. The 2JZ is a long motor and the condenser, intercooler, and radiator were moved forward into the bumper to make room for it.

    It’s a shame the Sky/Solstice were the last really good things Saturn and Pontiac did. These are really cool cars, built from commonly found parts bin stuff. Probably one of the best things Bob Lutz did when he returned to GM.

    I’m wondering how much fun they’d be with the new-ish GM LTG direct-injected 2.0L turbo crate engine. Fun motor with a warranty!
