Default BEGI will be splitting into 2 new companies!

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, And a time to die;
These are words of Solomon, the wisest of men. There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. The time to be born was 45 years ago when I developed my very first turbo charger system for a Datsun 240Z in my home garage in Irving Texas. That first turbo system was the start of a life-long career of product designs and development. I can truly say that I have enjoyed almost every minute of the path that I walked on.

As Solomon says there is a time to search and keep and a time to know when your search needs to take a new direction. That time has come for me. An asset buyout of products that BEGI manufactured will be under Bell Tuning & Performance, the business established by my daughter, Stephanie Bell-Turner. Stephanie will be offering the 1.6 and 1.8 Miata Turbo Systems along with most of the other products. I know that Stephanie will continue to specialize in tuning. I wish her the best in her new path that she is embarking on.

We will keep the BEGI website up for a while longer while we are taking a crash course in web design. All orders are still filled like normal via the new companies. You can still reach us thru email or one of the phone #s above. Stephanie will be shipping all remaining BEGI orders except FMS parts. Feel free to contact one of us with any questions.

Best regards to all of you,
Corky Bell
To Everything There is a Season

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

Solomon, Ecclesiastes 3, The Bible, New International Version (NIV)

Free Amsoil for everyone!

Despite having very few begi parts on my car, I hope this transition ends up being positive change on both sides of future transactions.

Both new websites are in the works, but not quite completed. This promises to be a great thing!

Which of the companies will actually deliver:
1) the correct product
2) on time
3) without missing any parts
4) and actually fit properly

Any chance you can make an edited version of your announcement without all the poetry and quotes so I can actually understand what is going on? This reads like a young mother just passed away from cancer and not a car parts company is just making a change.

Well, the one focused on selling stuff is going to be run by the same person who ran the other one

and

the other one is not focused on selling stuff

Those were Corky's words as he wanted them. I think you will be surprised at how things play out. I already have parts being made to stock turbo kits - to eliminate the delay in shipping. Bell Tuning will not be customizing stuff as much to allow for faster ship times. I have already converted all parts over to CNC or water jet cut for speed and accuracy, including exhaust manifolds. Bell Tuning has a great team, and I think you will be surprised.

Well I hope you deliver the improved service you promise because it's always nice to have more options and competition in the space from quality vendors. I'll be keeping watch with cautious optimism. #makebegigreatagain

Can you please check on the status of the CB1 I ordered in 2006? The local Cars and Coffee is tomorrow morning and I need to show some Mustang's how to really put the fear into bystanders.

I read it twice trying to understand. Its like reading a conversation between two people, without quotes. Written by him on her account was equally confusing.

Good luck on the new beginning.

Here is the short form version of what Stephanie posted of what Corky said (which was confusing enough):
