FS: 97 begi-s turbo + intercooler + stainless lines kit w/garrett 2554r
stainless oil feed w/ restrictor
stainless oil drain
stainless coolant lines
AN fittings for all of the above to connect to the turbo
gm IAT sensor
begi manifold w/ new TSE inconel studs
begi-s downpipe w/ WB bung
bosch bypass valve (used as BOV)
all intake piping to and from IC and turbo inlet w/ filter
96/97 guys will have to source the oil sensor Tee or find another oil source on the engine. I couldn't get mine off so I capped it. The downpipe cracked a few times by the turbo flange so I had it welded correctly by a good shop and it's held up fine since. The intercooler mounting points are a little bent when I ripped off my front splitter at Buttonwillow. It still mounts up fine. The kit is carb legal in certain forms and I have the CARB sticker. The inconel studs are great if you plan on tracking the kit. The ATP sourced oil restrictor didn't come with the BEGI kit, but is generally a good idea for a BB turbo.
If you don't track the kit everything will work great. If you do track the kit then you can feel confident I've already broken and fixed a bunch of the weak points.
