L81 3.0 DOHC... X30XE as they would call it for Saab, Vauxhall, Opel... etc.

The fact is, my buddy Dan was replacing a few valves in one of these things, and his friend challenged us. Said that engine can NEVER be made into anything fast.

I disagree, because they have that engine set-up F1 style in a Lotus Exige Kit. ITB setup and all.

Now, I'm not looking to make a *ZOMG VROOM* engine out of this.

Just something fun to put into a compact car, be it an S-Series, Sunfire, etc... with a manual transmission from a Saab.

I know Saab sells a turbo for it, I'm not worried about that.

I'm looking for anyone who has ANY information on the internals of this engine before we go diving in blindfolded on this project.

Also, for those of you who don't know who I am...

shoot me later.
