Default Im on the waiting list for a BEGI Intake Manifold..

I decided to go ahead and get on the waiting list for the BEGI intake manifold. Stephanie said sometime in January they should have some of these in and they will still be at $319.00. That to me is a great deal, especially since this IM is so promising. I think its gonna make a huge difference in power output after 5500 rpm. I think a lot of the torque drop off on the 1.8L is due to the stock manifold not flowing well. We shall see because when I get this manifold in, Im going right back to the dyno to see if I can break 300whp on the stock ecu. I want to do an apples to apples comparison of this IM -vs- the Stock manifold. Im expecting 15-20whp...but we shall see.

Probably end up being at the same price anyway.

That mani is sick. I'm excited to see what your gains will be.

I've been interested in this manifold also...... but a bit wary because I'll have to re-work my UICP to fit, and there aren't provisions for many of the stock components.... what throttle bodies can it be drilled to accept? I'd like to go bigger than the stock 2000 1.8 if I would be going as far as changing the intake manifold.

Also, what sort of fuel rail options would I have? The ugly stocker wouldn't be my choice, I'd like the performance of an aftermarket unit... as well as the aesthetics... but don't want the hassle of adding a return line...

what are the drawbacks to this unit? And what are the solutions to those drawbacks?

Didn't RJW make something like this for a coldside S/C?

Looks cool.

Im going to do another dyno after the manifold is on to see what kind of gains i get. Same exact boost and same exact fuel setup, etc.

Although I still like this one better.
set that guy up with a linear actuator and you could have megasquirt adjust runner length based on the load point. that would be pretty nice.
