I had picked up a 2003 Cavalier 2.2 Ecotec 5 speed beater a long time ago. It has 150,000 miles on it. It needed a slave and trans when I bought it

Found out my car has a spoiler without a 3rd brake light which is odd. Installed my AVS sunroof ventvisor.

Started disassembling the supercharger and cleaning it. I had to block one of the sensor ports not used on a jbody.

Just make sure you have the laminova cores clocked the correct way on reassembly.

Here is the front swaybar. It is rusty one the one side and I am not sure if it will work correctly. I called eibach and they are giving me a run around.

Love to see enthusiast level love thrown into a J-body. Nice work!

How are you liking the M62 compared to a turbo setup?
