indeed, Stephanie any idea what the begi s kit would cost without a turbo crossover tube and fpr? Also do you guys have them "in stock" or does it take a set period of time to get one out to me if i wanted.
Thanks
Nick

Right now we are running 2 - 3 weeks for the BEGi-S kits. Some items are already made, some are not. The hold up is downpipes.

We can delete the tubes not needed. One tube is $69.00 and one tube is $79.00. Deleted the fmu is <$150.00.

Any idea what an s kit would be with a SS 3 inch dp, no turbo, no crossover tubes, and no fpr would cost shipped to 94402.

I called today, and i was wondering how important is the 3 inch SS divorced dp? The cost to upgrade that is an additional 300 bucks. Im looking to do about 200whp is this really a needed upgrade or not even worth it with my power goals? Oil lines, the ones the come with the kit are rubber, do they need to be steel braided or are the ones that come with the kit good enough?

Have them do an SS feed line and hardlines for the coolant, if they can.

The SS S/G D/P is a $285.00 upgrade. The 3" exit is $30.00. The S/G pipe is nice for the low end spool up. It has not been proven to do anything for top end power. However, as a compromise, the mild steel pipe will work fine.

The rubber lines will last a year or two. They are just a royal pain to get to later. We can do just a stainless supply line, it is up to you.

Stephanie, can you guys do coolant hardlines? Something like a brake fluid line with a banjo fitting on the end, so you have a solid pipe next to the turbo (super-high reliability) that can transfer into a standard rubber hose once you've gotten out of the "oven" zone of the turbo?

Also, is there an option to do a 3" ID pipe at the end of the DP with an oversized flange (ala Enthuza), vs. the 3" OD pipe you guys use? Partially for Nick, since IMO both of those things are valuable, and partially for me to reference since I want to switch to an S5-style EWG next year.

We have not done any coolant hard lines. We have done some EGR tubes, but not coolant lines. I do not how they would hold up with engine rocking.

We do have a 3" downpipe. It is a $30 upgrade. It should be measured at the ID also.

My mistake. This is actually measured at the OD. All tubing material is and then the wall thickness is 0.128" etc.. I apologize for the confusion.
