Well thats just the way the world works these days. People are always out to discredit other people Hell look at celebrities (not naming any names), they do something stupid, like.. say get preggo, then flash their privates, and dump Justin Timberlake, and its all over the news. Never mind the fact that that individual hadn't made a hit record in like 5 years.

Maybe I'll have to give Steph a call. :-)

I've dealt a lot more with FM, the main reason: low resolution pics of the stuff BEGI makes. I really want to see what I'm getting. I got a killer deal on a used FMII years back, and they have been good taking care of stuff they didn't need to.

Then again, they let stuff go they really could do something about. Overall they are ok, but I too have noticed Jeremy isn't quite the replacement for Keith that he could be. Keith seems to be interested in cars.

It's still better-than-average support, and I think they treat people well. I've gotten plenty of good advice from the folks at BEGI, it just turns out they never have quite what I'm looking for at quite what I have on hand to pay for it when I am in the market for something.

My only real complaint about FM is I've caught them a couple times saying "We've never see that happen before" then months later I'll hear from a few people independently that they'd asked FM about it but they weren't any help.

BEGi all the way. Quality can't be beat, and Steph's customer service is top notch. Corky's easy to get ahold of if needed as well.

I ordered the parts for my custom setup carefully, since I didn't want to be dicking with the major components. There's a reason my entire hotside is made up of BEGi parts.

Talking

I've dealt with both a lot recently, never had a problem. Been working with Stephanie a bunch on an Xede install, Jeremy and Bill have been great in dealing with picking up some updated pieces for my older setup (did awesome with the moving sale!), and I spoke with Corky just yesterday about my old T25.

Hence my setup:

94 Classic Red
BEGI 4.2
Voodoo Box, FM II intercooler, pipes, BOV and new style intake
Soon to run Xede.

Best of both!

Heh. Wow, yeah, that's a lot better. I like the BOV pipe, direct and to the point.

Like I said, FM has taken care of stuff that they could have blamed on me, and I've gotten a lot of great advice from them when I was new to all this.

The last bit of advice almost implied that I should buy another computer when I had my boost creep issue (which, when directly asked, turned out not to be what was said)...

Still, at least it was good to find out the issue was real.
