Default BEGI's current email address?

I've tried stepht at bellengineering dot net twice, once this weekend and once last weekend, with no response. I've seen her on the forums, so I'm wondering whether the address is bad or not. I want to know whether they can pre-install a WB and EGT bung in a new manifold/DP setup so I don't have to have some bumfuck muffler shop weld on my brand new turbo setup.

An EGT is normally just a 1/8NPT threaded hole drilled and tapped into the manifold. You may want to wait and do that yourself when you can see where everything will lay out and be accessable.

that would explain the lack of reply to 2X e-mails thus far... sigh, now I have have to get off my lazy *** and call people? putting together a turbo isn't suppose to be this difficult.

I'll call them sometime. I figured they may know where to weld the bungs so they're easily accessible in the car, rather than me having to install the manifold, DP, and turbo, then mark for the bungs, then UNinstall, drill, and weld. I'd much rather pay a premium to BEGI to have them do it before I even get the parts.

You've probably bought stuff from them before. I bought a second hand manifold and am looking to buy an EGR kit and studs... I'm small potatoes. Honestly, if I were her I'd put me on the back burner too and handle the folks who are forking over thousands of bucks on major parts.

The credit card should be paid off next month, then I'll re-drill my turbo and call them about doing a custom DP to fit it (goofy external WG). Trying to decide if I want to fab my intercooler pipes first or not.

I've spent a little (intercooler) but this is over a custom pipe worth like 50 bucks.
