currently no, you would have to get another exhaust manifold, and remove the sai system and find a dealership or someone that can flash ur ecu to remove it

You can still use the GMPP intake you'll just need a breather filter for the SAI connection.

Please buy an 08 sport for about 17k. 17k for a base model is a terrible idea.

I know u can remove the SAI and delete it out if you can find a dealer willing to but when i was installing my 2.4 mani i was the SAI was hooked up to this thing bolted to the base of the engine. so here's my question when removing it from the car is it separate from engine or do i need some type of plug for the engine?

Beacuse i was told the air goes in the engine then to the manifold... but it look like it just bolted on with no connection to the engine as far as air goin in or out but i could be wrong...

It sound like you are talking about the PCV, not SAI. Get a picture or somebody who already knows what it looks like.

I have a question so if I have this lame secondary injection are there any intakes that would fit my car without modifing or removing my secondary injection?

We carry the K&N intake that will fit right up and work with SAI @ www.TurboTechRacing.com

Or, if you don't like the K&N, just do the mini-filter on the SAI line as shown REPEATEDLY in this thread.

There is no extra O2 sensor. You don't have to plug anything.

Simply because they moved it from the manifold to the downpipe.

If you get a header youll have an O2 sensor in the header anbd one after the cat. No issues.

SAIR cars dont have EXTRA O2 sensors, they just moved the "before cat" sensor out of the manifold and into the downpipe.

So I did the whole mini-filter on the SAI thing. Worked great for awhile but I ran into one small problem.

Like a month ago I opened the hood on a routine inspection of my car and noticed the mini breather was off. It wasn't the snuggest fit when we put it on so I wasn't shocked ya know. It had actually fallen down onto the cross member so I just grabbed it and popped it back on and didn't think too much of it.

Turns out the inlet pipe had shifted and began resting on a pulley down there. Rubbed a pretty decent sized hole into the thing, I can fit the tip of my pinky into it.

So, now I am kinda stuck. For now I just electrical taped the thing so nothing gets in there but, I am not sure how long it has been exposed like that. Worst case scenario what would happen to the car if something got sucked into there? And any advice on how to fix the hole without buying a whole new inlet tube for the car? My plan is to just do something now so I won't have issues during the winter months and then replace the tube in Spring.

Right now the electrical tape works but my god does it make my car smell awful when that engine bay heats up.

It really can't cause any damage. That air just basically get blown out the exhaust. If you wish to replace it, just get some ordinary rubber tube with the same inside diameter and some hose clamps. Autozone has bulk tubing.
