Well, BEGi has a good line and fitting assortment: http://www.bellengineering.net/Pages...rts_lines.html

For oil supply, refer to FMs instructions for step-by-step instructions and pictures: Section 7 or Page 13.

you finally joining the dark side.

BTW another option for you for feed and drain lines is to drive down to summit and pick up you part locally. I did that with my feed line, now my project is on hold again, but we luck out with summit here.

BTW you going to the event saturday?

It's just .40" over. It's under 1900cc (1884 I think, 50cc over stock.)

BEGi can and will do just about anything. It's just a matter of you supplying what they need to make sure it fits. If you are using their manifold I imagine they will make you a custom T3 downpipe if you send them the turbo for fitting the whole thing up. Might take a few weeks depending on how busy they are. Their prices are always fair, even on custom work.

I believe Braineack had a custom dp made for a T3 super 60 by BEGi. They probably still have the jig to make one.

Yes (braineack) has a t3 begi mani set and they pop them out all day long for customers. Your setup will work just fine. You get oil from a Teeing in where the stock pressure sensor is. If i where you i would DL the install PDF's from FM, or begi. And it will be alot clearer but realy this is a simple thing GL man.

Surpirsingly they didnt jig it, others have gotten them made after me. Same price as retail. They might have jigged it finally. dunno
