we just installed the C2motorsports SRI for the 2.5L. BEST fitting, easiest to install, DID NOT DYNO'D YET! (so don't ask! haha) but pulls VERY nice through 3000 to 7200. no loss of torque at bottom end. no modifications needed to install this SRI(bend one bracket and shorten one hose 2'', shown in pictures.) no extra parts needed! everything is included.
we can order, install and flash this and ANY C2motorsports products inhouse! let us know what we can help you with.
install charge for this at our shop if you have a short ram or CAI already would be $320 plus tax.
C2motorsports SRI is $999 plus software.
disclaimer. this is just a help. if you try it yourself and screw it up, don't blame me!
remove bumper cover. lower cover. grill and then there is 8 lower front and 4 upper fender area bolts holding the front rebar/rad support on. remove then and just lean the frotn end forward a bit. no need to remove or drain coolant or remove any hoses or wires. just need a bit of clearance.
front bolts on frame. 4 per side
upper bolts near fenders. 2 on each side
remove air box, intake tube or aftermarket cai. leave sai and block vents in oem spot.
remove vent line from valve cover to intake manifold, set aside as you can reuse it later for a down draft tube, unless you run a catch can- then its junk!
remove the evap selonoid connector, pop hose off the throttle boddy and remove the 2 screws holding the fuel rail on. you will not need to disconnect anything. you will not reuse the fuel rail screws, new ones are provided
on the passenger side of the intake manifold, hidden under the side is a vent tube, remove it from intake. you will have to cut this line short about 2'' to fit the new SRI vent port. pic later.
pop down the dipstick tube clip, you WILL reuse it on the C2 sri. under the intake manifold are 2 triple box bolts holding the SAI pump to the intake manifold, remove them. but you will not need them again.
remove the 2 screw for the throttle body, connector and hose. you will not reuse the screws. also remove the map sensor on the intake manifold. remove harness from holder that goes over the intake manifold.
remove all bolts from intake manifold, the center bottom one needs a SUPER thin allen socket and long extension. save all bolts. you will reuse them. also if the plastic clips come off with the bolts, remove them form the bolts as you will not need them. pictured here is the 2 bottom support bolt holes from the SAI pump bracket you will not need to use...and my lovely hand.
near the alternator there is a bracket to hold the hose going to the manifold. bend this tab down. its in the way and not needed anymore because the hose is moved.
the C2 SRI uses factory O-rings for the head and throttle body flanges. but it make it easier to seal....cut the small nipple on the other edge. the left one is cut, right one is oem. this will make the gasket fit perfect. throttle body needs no mods.
pop the MAP snsor in on the driverside bottom side of the C2 sri. face it forward so its easy to install the harness. 2 new bolts are included
install gaskets and use factory bolts to factory torque specs and install the C2 SRI.
use the supplied fuel rail spacers. one for each side and they are differnt side to side. use the longer supplied bolts for rail.
i hid the evap sel. under the SRI so it looks cleaner....you can do what you wish, but it fits and the wires are long enough. tucked the injector harness back too...
now for the major modification you can't reverse! OH NO!!! ha.
cut this hose back about 2'' to fit cleaner. you don't HAVE to but it looks cleaner if you do.
then use the nipple provided to connect to the SRI, 2 plugs are giving as well to plug up if you don't need other ports right now, but if your turbo...these are very helpful!
for now, you can use a "down draft" tube for the VC vent. we flipped the oem vent line around and put a hose on the other end and ran it under the car. we highley recommend the BFI 2.5L catch can for sure! best out on the market, fits mint! but if you do a down draft tube, make sure its fixed and not in the way of anything(picture of the tube is not finished yet)
bolt on the short ram or CAI etc taht you wish to use as its in the fatcory position, so no custom piece needed.
reinstall bumper rebar bolts and bummer cover.
flash with C2 SRI software and GO GO GO!
