Default BEGI Kit Pics / FIC Installation

Though I'd post some pics of the BEGI kit I just received. It's a Stage 1 without intercooler. Looks to be of nice quality. Will get the FIC wired in and working before starting - just need the harness that cjernigan is going to make.

Man i love newly ceramic coated pieces. You doing the install this weekend? Are you going to do your own wiring for the FIC or did you get a boomslang?

Will probably start next weekend. Installing springs this weekend. Weren't you going to build a straight through harness that I could wire in to?

AEM hasn't validated the FIC installation on a 99-00 so there's no wiring diagram or pnp harness for it yet. Except for the resistors, it seems pretty staight forward - this is how I plan to wire it.

Man you are saving yourself so much hassle by getting this stuff off the bat. Having a turbo kit makes the stress of wondering if something is going to break or fall apart very minimal.

What is that plug or something all the way on the right side of the manifold?

How come begi gets the oil from a sandwich plate and not the pressure sender?

Congrats on the kit, how much did it cost all together and how long did you wait to receive it?

The "plug" is a port for the EGR tube.
I have a feeling they get oil from the sandwich plate instead because they had a few oil sender "Ts" break on customers. Whenever BEGI has things like that happen they change something. Thus the 10mm studs for example.

No, I know that its the EGR tube. I mean all the way on the left edge.

ever removed a oil pressure sender? wouldn't you rather remove the oil filter.

i'm sure the 1/8" bsp fitting wasn't fun either.

Never tried the sender, but I did the oil filter. I see your point.

Whats BSP fitting, its the second time I have heard it mentioned and google images has no pictures of it and I couldnt find it on ATP turbo. Whats it for?

That plug looks like the sprew from the metal casting turned into a EGT probe port. Otherwise I have no idea.

One's the EGR port not sure about the other - maybe Stephanie will chime in.

The kit comes with a T-fitting. I picked up the sandwich plate to ease the installation.

So far I'm up to ~$3250. Took about 3 weeks to receive it. Can't think of anything else I need?

$580 shipped for the FIC and Wideband from Nester - best price I could find.
$2366 shipped for S1 without intercooler and fueling - Sept was free shipping.
$20 sandwich plate new from a board member
$200 used laptop from a board member
$~75 for a harness coming from cjernigan
