No, not really for boost.. you're either boosted or you're not.. the closest you could do is maybe install the fuel management before boost.

These cars don't have any real aftermarket computer support.. you're going to have to learn the megasquirt "universal" engine management system.. which is actually super awesome and robust.. not to mention affordable.

There's a build thread in my signature where I'm a weekend away from installing the turbo setup on mine (just did break in Saturday of new engine with forged internals)

Also if you're going for boost any mods leading up to it are going to get tossed in the garbage.. as in header/intake/etc.. as they'll be replaced..

Have you ever "built" a car before?

" megasquirt "universal" engine management system" ???
I, what? Please tell me that is *not* the actual name lol

I have not "built" a car before. This will be my first project. I signed up on a Saturn forum to look for help/advice on the project.

And we're here to help.

you're making me drool (AGAIN) over putting a turbo on my 95 SC2....(goalie smirks)

Build the engine--the internals, THEN worry about what attaches to it......

The end result will be worth the effort, and you will learn more than you wanted to know about engine building and turbo systems.

And then you can stop by my place and do mine in a weekend I'll even throw in food and water.

I'm glad that my enthusiasm is rekindling yours!

Any suggestions on where to find and order the forged internals that I will need for the rebuild?

Make it food and BEER, and you've got a deal. Lol

OH, and I forgot to mention...

I noticed a small vibration that I hadn't noticed before. On suggestion from my step-father, I checked the motor mounts. Stupid Michigan winter weather and salt has rusted the hell out of them. One is rusted through. Adding new motor mounts to that list of items I am going to need. Lol

sc2sick seems like a logical person to PM...

By the way, sc2sick -- LOVE the forum layout and organization -- I guess that's what happens when a saturn dude gets to design a saturn forum website
