      did you get a C2 SRI update? I got a flash about three weeks ago and I am wondering if they fixed the dead spot yet like UM did

      i think it pulls harder, idk maybe its just my mind but CEL is gone and i can feel the torque just pulling and when im around 5-7k the tires start squealing in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear

      i filled up right before the last video and that 300miles to a 3/4 tank isnt too bad for hitting redline like that

      no it was a UM update. and i was under the impression that UM has already fixed that "dead spot"

      idk but i was going to dyno this thing before and after the update. but Fred said he was gonna do so this wknd and id rather save my $50. soon enough we will get a 2009 dyno sheet. i also think i read on C2's facebook page that they did succesfully tune a 2009 2.5l

      Washed it, then got it really muddy while a friend took some pictures.


      Clamped all but 2 pieces into the jig for my s/c plenum. Im feeling lazy so no welding.




      More images will be added to my build thread.

      i f ucked a part that transfers the electricity to the rest of the car... ugh.

      therefore i discharged the battery, and it now wont start.

      anyways i'll buy the part tomorrow at the dealer.

      My dyno will happen this week regardless. so dont worry

      What part did you end up messing up? And why did it go? Extended wire issue? Or was it shorted out because of it grounding out/sparking? resistance is very important on these cars apparently.and a wire that's too resistant or not nearly enough...its really kinda scary
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      lol.. just got back from the dealer (1 mile away from work)

      the part is 31.50, and overnight shipping is 7.50, with tax and all, it ended in 41 or 42... not bad.

      it sucks that they have the most useless things in stock... but oh well... its just one more day.

      Install tomorrow afternoon, test and drive/log on wednesday... dyno on wednesday or thursday.

      sound good? videos will happen as soon as i have a driveable car again.

      No one will stock that, but overnighting is always an option

      Almost done with the hardlines. I have to redo a few, I may run 3 little pressure gauges on the side by side lines to make it resemble pipeline pressure lines! Stainless is soooooo hard to work with

      Yes, but not yet. This is in the engine bay. Hardlining everything I can. I wish someone made silicone radiator and coolant hoses for us

      Upcoming plans:
      Pull trans and paint red.
      Put battery back in the hatch.
      Finish the air hardlines and get that installed.
      Install the engine dampener.

      around here there is a truck place called hampton rubber. and they make all kinds of hoses and stuff like that. anytime i need some kind of air ride fitting or hose ill go there and they will make it to w/e spec. and have many types of hoses

      idk maybe this helps
