Thanks.
I didn't realize I would be "technically" buying a collector item in 2008 due to GM dropping Saturn and Pontiac. Thankfully it shares a lot of common parts with other GM cars and there is a good aftermarket community for it.

Thanks!

No one made one like the one you see on the scca solstice.
A company called smoothline did make a sky one but it leaked and was not a good fit.

The only part of the body that is not stock is the rear fascia.
The hood is stock. The vents are wrapped in vinyl and the rest is painted black.

I dig it. I wanted a solstice in the worst way when they came out since I don't really fit in most two seater convertibles lol.

I have front and rear wilwood brake kits ordered from TCE.
They should arrive next week.
Then, new clutch, K1 rods and Wiseco pistons.
That's to support some additional power later down the road.

Finally getting around to my engine Build.

The Custom E47 Tune and increased Redline eclipsed the stock Valvetrain and forced me to get my butt in gear. So I dropped my car off at my speed shop.
Here is the list of items being performed.

Motor dis-assembly, cleaning of block and head, re-assembly Balance Crankshaft
Polish crank
Deck Block
Timing Chain Tensioner
Rear Main Seal
Timing Cover Gasket 2.4-2.0L
Main Bolts 2.4-2.0L,
Girdle Bolts 2.4-2.0L
Wiseco Piston for 2.0L LNF engine. 86.5mm bore size with stock compression ratio of 9.2:1 (comes with slick sides, wrist pins, rings and locks)
Ceramic Coating for the Piston
ARP Head Studs
GM Water Pump
Carillo "H" Beam Rods for the LNF
Rod Bearing 2.0L set Head Gasket-2.0L
Ethanol resistant Fuel Injector Seals
5th Injector install using a Siemens 630cc injector and Devils own Progressive controller.

Competition Head Porting includes shaving the head and 3 way valve job Valve Seals,
Valve Cover Gasket 2.0L Ecotec
Supertech Valve Springs/Retainer Kit
Supertech Intake Valves (2 Per Cylinder)
Supertech Exhaust Valves (2 Per Cylinder)

Then put it all together and back into the car

Should make the engine safe for up to 700HP
Goal is only 450-500HP which is the traction limit on tires that fit with no body modification

We are testing a new turbo to see if the Billet Wheel will spool faster and get more airflow up top at the same time. Theory says yes, reality does not always mimic theory. If that does not result in any more HP, but brings the spool down to stock, that would still be a win in my book.

I updated the first post with the current list of mods.
Holy Crap is that ridiculous.
I cant believe how much has been done and is still being done. I have an addiction.

We are converting the car to be a 6 speed using a GTO T56 transmission, custom clutch, adapter and backbone.
This will make first gear useable again. With the 5 speed its so short the instant the turbo kicks in I need to shift
