It looks exactly the same as the ones we had here- which were on early cars... We did have to grab underneath it with a rag on the line to hold it and push VERY hard, then they snap on- permanently.
I will check the PN tomorrow and see if it's the same through all the years.
Hope you get it worked out I have that fitting I got from Jegs. Mine turns on that oem port. Pete is making it sound like its supposed to be very tight, no movement at all
Hopefully I can get it figured out sooner than later. And yeah, I think they should adjust the adapter a wee bit to make it easier because even crawling under my car didn't help.
I am just gonna leave it to my homie to take care of. Having my oil cooler and gauges installed along with some exhaust adjustments and my lightweight pulley wheel.
Weren't you guys making billet plugs for the side of the head to replace the plastic plugs? I want a set, but can't find who was making them. Do the camshafts have to come out to change them?
That's a bummer about the shipping damage... You'll need to contact Bluewater on that one though- we just supply them the adapter plates- the rest of it is their kit and packaging etc...
You would have to pretty much remove the cams to change cam seals- the cam tray has to mostly come off.
Hmm... I guess I'll hold off on them for now, bit you guys do make billet cam seals correct?
I actually asked if they did when they were building their dyno set up 2.5 pointed out that they would be a neat upgrade.they said they would make them, but it wasn't a simple swap, so not really priority.
Sent from the bottomless pits of HELL!
god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!
C2 stage 2 TURBO!!! ACHTUNG!!! 2.5liter 5cylinder contents under pressure!!!
Just got done finally reading the second installment about the 2.5l dyno.
Worthy of a six-pack.
Today we received another new CNC Mill to help serve you guys better- check it out!
Kevin- Call us up for a more accurate quote... We do ship UPS, not first class mail or something- we want stuff to get there in one piece.
Sweet, now I can get one at some point to make my engine look alittle nicer. Nice job

Bump for an update.
How are the intake manifolds coming?
The new Integrated Engineering unique fittings feature a AN o ring boss port on one end, and a 5/16" hose barb on the other end. Use these to plumb in aftermarket fuel systems much easier without need for extra fittings and ugly adapters. We manufacture these fittings in house. Match them with your custom setup by choosing IE red or black anodize finish.
Just to elaborate on that- what that really boils down to for you 2.5L guys is that you can screw the -8 ORB fitting into our fuel rail and stick the stock hose directly on there with no further modifications. A hell of a lot cheaper, faster, and easier then the complete replacement line.
Should make throwing a rail on there dead easy, between the quick drop on fitting and now having a notch for cam sensor clearance with short runners.
IM's are coming along- re-tested our best combination today just to double check results... Everything repeated fine so we will be testing one more thing either late this week or right after we get back from waterfest, then it needs to go on the car to dial in the smaller details.
But will these be capable with the 2012?
