Default BEGi V-Band S4 2860RS

I got my stuff in today for my V-band setup from BEGi. The turbo is a GT2860RS with the .64 turbine. As of now i don't need 375HP at the track, so I went with something that will give me the least lag possible. I will post more pictures tonight as it took 5 minutes for my phone to email just this one picture to myself.

It looks like form the pics that the runners come straight in on the sides, but they don't.

The standard S4 has a really nice collector. Why'd they decide to bring the side runners in at a 60+ degree angle on this manifold?

Also, take a shitload of detailed photos of your turbine housing for me, specifically the inlet and the overall size compared to the exit flange. I want to compare to my .86 housing.

I had both .86 and .64 turbines on my old 2871. There was a big difference in physical size/girth. This was obviously with the garrett turbine but I'm sure the tial is the same way. Sorry, no pics.

isn't the standard s4 an ebay manifold with bracing? If so I'd say that's far from nice

This thing has some heft to it in the manifold. The runners have much thicker walls than the S4 manifold I just pulled off it. Don't get me wrong, the S4 is not fragile, but this thing is robust.

It is not an ebay manifold with a brace. That guy was sent a manifold to see if he could make them for BEGi and ended up just copying it badly and sending the manifold back.

Reading comprehension is a good skill to have. I never said anything about the manifold material or construction, and I won't because I've never seen one. What I have seen is a difference in collector style between the v-band S4 and the standard S4.

Your **** is in the mail to me, pozatron. I'll mail it back to Tim on Monday.

This housing has spent more time in the back of a shipping truck than it has spent in both Tim's and my possession combined. It's like the village *****.
