Boost! of'course i love it, however, i must say that there are some VERY questionable parts included in the kit. for instance, the AFM to air filter bracket doesn't seem to make any sense. the downpipe with two bungs in the 6 o'clock position has me wondering too.

Get in touch directly with BEGi to fix this. My SS downpipe had the same issue, and they are taking care of it for me. I'm having them weld one at the 12-1 o'clock position so the wbo2 sensor fits between the transmission tunnel and the transmission, and leaving the second one where it is so it's easy to access.

Anyway, congratulations on the build! Get ready to want more boost!
