Frequently Asked Questions

Who came up with this part?

Here at CarSaturn we believe good is the enemy
of great. After changing numerous intake
manifolds on SL’s we realized there had
to be a better way to serve our customers
with a problem created by Saturn.
Mechanical engineering degrees, lab testing,
hours of field testing (not to forget hundreds of
can of redbull) we created a patent-pending
solution to a common problem.
Good was replacing the intake manifold,
great is fixing the problem!

Is this safe? Has this been done before?

This CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) fabricated part has been tested for over ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND MILES! before it was even available for sale to the public.
We have hundreds of reviews raving about the precision and fit, along with $ savings.

Does modifying my manifold make it weaker?

Absolutely not. All points have been addressed.
As shown in the second video, the “Z” bolt
pattern is not broken up- therefore the integrity
is not changed. Also, a second bolt hole is
uncovered in the process to securely fasten the
part. Rumor in the shop is that Saturn knew of
this problem and left the future hole
covered for a later fix but never got around to it.

Can I just buy another manifold?

Yes and no. If you buy if from the used parts
dealers you will buy something that WILL crack
in the SAME spot if it has not done so already. Remember- a hairline crack may not be visible to the naked eye, but can fail once the engine heats up. GM/Saturn dealers no longer manufacture
this intake manifold so the few remaining on the
shelves will be gone soon- along with the $350+ price tag.

Can my mechanic install this?

Anyone can install this after watching the two
videos within a few hours saving lots of $$$!
We have also provided a list of shops throughout
the country that will do this for you!
