1 is easier to do the swap trick on but i can do it on my model two so you should be fine

I dont have personal experience with this but I have heard that v1 saturns are harder to install a mod chip in when compared to the v2 versions. On the other hand I agree with the poster above that the swap method has proven to be easier on the v1's.

V2 is a million times easier to mod. Fitting a modchip in a V2 is not hard at all supposedly (I bought 2 that turned out to have some wierd third party motherboard so bought one premodded).
