This 2004 Saturn Ion Redline has 164,000 miles on the body and 86,000 on the engine. The bad news, though: needs a head gasket.

Save one of our Challenge regulars by purchasing it before he does, okay?

205 hp 200 ftlbs stock, looks like some nice mods to install including that pulley!

Don't think they had an LSD factory, but it uses the same basic trans as Saab 9-5s, which have a ton of cheap torsen type lsds floating around on eBay.

I like them a lot, I think they are pretty comparable in setup to the Cobalt SS. From what I understand the suspension is set up pretty well right out of the box. I don't know too much about that powertrain a head gasket failure common on these engines at 86,000 mi?

This is a crazy good deal. I'd love to pick this up. Do the head gasket and this thing at least doubles its resale value.
