yeah its an ebay intercooler kit, not from begi, unfortunatly couldnt afford the begi intercooler so the jdm one will have to do.
im just waiting for the parts list to be emailed to me by begi, but so far it all looks good to me!
cant wait to get it fitted!

I do know the inlet pipe is missing but i knew that and they are sending it to my home address in the UK free of charge when it arrives from powder coating.
Idont know if im missing anything else although i got a gauge pod for my boost gauge for free! was a mistake

Lol, seems like you're just as likely to get mistaken free stuff as missing stuff!

If there is ever a person who gets their entire begi kit with directions, part list, and parts right the first time, I think it should be stickied immediately by a moderator.

Does anyone second?

I started installing my S2 kit a couple weeks ago. So far, I've had missing:

Turbo to manifold studs, nuts, and washers
Oil feed line
Wastegate actuator circlip

BEGi did make everything right in short order, which is cool considering I have been sitting on the kit for almost a year and a half. They also agreed to modify my 1.6 downpipe for a 3" exhaust for free for my troubles.

My s5 kit was a nightmare. It was the 1st one made, but man, It was a tough one....

All I have from it now is the manifold/IC/IC piping..

You do look like you have a nice set up there ...

-oh, and the bracket that supposed to hold the AFM didnt fit at all
-Oh, and it has the most epic case of boost creep ive ever experienced, hahaha

I really meant the labeled bags as a compliment to them trying.

I DID NOT want to turn this into a bashing thread.

They did a great job of fixing my missing parts:

silicone couplers - overnighted
(2) IC elbows - fabbed, powdercoated and overnighted
brass oil drain fitting, mani/turbo bolts, heat shield bolts - sourced myself


It's good to see that the Shanghai kit gets as much attention as all their other products as far as parts bag labeling and organization. The complete kit idea has to be a good seller for them.
