Just wondering if anyone has tried or even thought of trying this swap.
Thinking this will be easier than a V6 swap. and should be plenty of
power for this small of a car. I think they make somewhere in the
neighborhood of 275hp.

Just going out on a limb here, if by "2.0T", you mean the motor from a Redline Saturn Sky, or possibly the the Chevy HHR SS, it has been done, at least in a Manta, haven't heard of any in a GT yet

Do you mean the 2.0 Ecotec turbo that came in the Saturn Skys(New Opel GT Roadster) and Pontiac Solstices?

If so, I'm told that it's a very difficult fit that will require a bunch of chopping. I was going to go that route with my GT and was going to have the work done by someone who had put a 2.0T in a Manta for another member. He said the Manta was a tough install and that the same 2.0T in a GT would be a horror story.

I opted for an Opel 2.4 engine instead. I have a Solstice with the N/A 2.4 GM engine also.

My GT is faster than my Solstice.


We had discussed installing the new smaller 1.6(or 1.4?) Ecotec with Turbo built into the exhaust manifold as an alternative.

MODERATOR'S NOTE: I've moved this thread to the "Engine Swap Forum" as that is the topic...
