Corky is working on a cast version of the S4 manifold. But it is still a ways off. It would sit lower and have longer runners than the manifold pictured above.

Compressor is clocked upward for simplicity. Corky has designed a universal actuator mount, so re-clocking the turbo should not be too much of a hassle. I'll post more photos if IC upgrade later today.

I voted for Ghetto - I really did. But he liked 'simple' better.
Believe me, I am not cheap!

Nice. What turbo is supplied? Says options of T2560 and T2860...they mean GT2560 and GT2860? Does that mean the standard is the 2554?

A better manifold, better downpipe, and a better turbo, as well as BEGI quality on the rest of the stuff for an extra $300 over new or $700 over used?

Seriously, can anyone in good conscience here recommend a GReddy kit, new or used, ever again?

I think you just ruined all the potential sales of new & used Greddy turbo kits for all the sellers.

How's the 2554 on the 1.8?

Nice price point though, for sure. Great job BEGI!

The 2554R on the 1.8 is sweet. I'm getting 6psi by 3000rpm and I think my wastegate actuator needs a little adjustment. Capable of 220-230whp or more as well. Eliminate the intercooler and you'll see even better spool.

It spools instantly pretty much. Full boost from like 2500 RPM on. It's pretty sweet for a small turbo. It won't ever make good power but when you consider that the 3071 is in the same family this makes the upgrade pretty easy.

Just saw this on their site. Holy crap, that changes everything. Pretty much exactly what I was planning on doing DIY but with a freaking BEGi supported upgrade path for the same price.

Damn. Good job guys.

Thumbs up New Budget BEGI turbo systems. WOOHOO.

I am excited about this. It's been discussed and in the making for a while and I think these will be perfect for alot of people. I would have been all over this about a year ago. There are options for 1.6l and 1.8l with 99+ coming soon. Awesome manifold, Awesome turbo, Awesome quality, Awesome upgrade path, and Awesome price. 40-50% power increases over stock.

Greddy will still have the upperhand if the Begi-s kit is not CARBed.
