Default FM radiator hose and Begi Water bypass

Im planning on running a bottom mount turbo setup. Does anyone have any better pics of the flyin miata lower radiator hose or the begi bypass setup? I know the begi setup will work, I just havent found many reviews of it.

I know that you'll have fitment issues with a larger than stock swaybar.

the FM hose used to be a universal flex hose, now I believe it's a molded silicone unit....

Our is different in that it totally removes the mixing manifold and coolant line that runs underneath the manifold. That will make manifold and downpipe installation much, much, easier! It also includes a re-route of the heater line, either similar to the mixing manifold or a full blown Racer Reroute. The rubber tubes that we send can be shortened or adjusted as needed to fit some sway bars.

I bought the FM lower silicone hose, and was all excited expecting it to get me a bunch of room for my charge pipe to go down. I was sort of surprised when it took basically the identical path... it seems like it's used to delete the little junction box for coolant, rather then actually giving you more space. I'll try to take a picture tonight.

Putting my FMII kit on as we speak, just slipped the lower rad hose on and it is in clear view. I'm away from my camera atm but will have it tomorrow. I'll get you a pic in the am/early afternoon.

Here's a picture of my installed FM lower rad hose. I did a paintbrush trace on it so you can see where it goes. Like I said, basically follows stock path. It is however a well made piece.
