Im gonna be pretty disappointed if it doesn't fit right, should be great though. I'll be using my Tial 38mm i'm currently running but i'll also be using a T3 60trim instead of the current .80/.48 T25.

If BEGi is building it, be ready for a disappointment......

Don't get me wrong, quality of materials and welds are great, fitment.....not so much

Without going into nitty gritty details, they wanted me to pay for shipping back to them for their mistake, but finally agreed to pay both ways. I marked the correct location for the replacement O2 bung, and emailed them pictures of the issue, and included a letter of what needed to be done to make it work. They sent it back to me, with the new O2 bung in the correct location, but even though the pictures speak for themselves, they just welded a plug into the bung, creating even more of an issue. After numerous phone calls back and forth, and after shipping my downpipe back and still not fixed, I was literally told that they won't mess with it anymore and I had to find someone else to fix it on my dime. Great customer service, nothing like paying $400 for a downpipe that doesn't fit and not even willing to fix correctly......

Heh. Sorry, dude. I know what it's like to be stuck with hackish parts while you're trying to get something done. Truth is I'd been looking for an excuse to use that chicken picture for a while.

Heard that. It's a slow process, in the meantime I just settle for the mediocre hack job that is my turbo back setup.

Just fit checked my rear bung location with the sensor. The sensor cabling is up against the transmission. The dp also need to rotated in that direction to get some clearance up top.

If the bung was located an inch or two towards the front looks like it would clear just fine even with the dp rotated some more.

The only time the lower bung has been used on my DP was on the dyno. I have my wideband in the stock location.

Interesting...U know I was thinking bout that too, but thought itd be better to put the wb02 further from the turbo, and plus I was able to keep my stock o2 to help avoid any cels or anything...
Can the stock 02 just be disconnected from the harness alltogether with no issues/cels/etc?? I'll be running MS if that helps any?

Figured I would ressurect this thread rather than start a new one.

I spoke with Stephanie at BEGI today about the O2 bung location; they are building an S kit for me right now. She said that they were working on this issue last week and have a new location for the bung determined. If I remember correctly she said it would be at the 12 o'clock (vertical) position. I'll let you all know how it works out when I get my kit installed.

I dont want to put my LC1 controller under the car and route my wires through the shift boot :(. Although I bet it would make for a cleaner bay.

Anyone have their LC1 controller under the hood, does the sensor reach the bung?

Yeah, probably based on the pictures I sent them earlier last week. As of right now, I'm waiting on my new downpipe.

I'm still finishing up putting a turbo setup together so I'm still rocking N/A..


If you look in the mess I've yet to clean up by where the coils are sitting, ziptied with 2 white ties to the brake booster tube is my LC1. Any further over and the sensor wire wouldn't reach, and supposedly the stock location is too close to the turbo for a wideband sensor. I hacked off the connector from an old o2 sensor off a miata and used the connector for plug and play on the Wideband, so I haven't decided yet if I'm going to tie the controller to the PPF and leave wire running under the hood to the factory harness, or if I'm going to come in behind the passenger seat somehow.

Sure the hell can't go through under my center console cause theres already too many fat cables running under it and the damn thing hardly seats down as is.
