I was surprised too, but not shocked. I kept pushing the engine until something had to give. If not then, after the next upping of the nitrous shot.

You're surprised because they only bent and didn't snap off or that they were damaged at all?

Technically that's a BEGi kit now. Mine doesn't look as pretty, but it makes a lot more power.

Just was reading some more of the posts on this forum and found y'all to frown upon FM systems. Sorry to have offended anyone by posting these pics...it's just what came on the car. Bought the car for $14K with all this "stuff" on it. Though it was a good deal. Hope I'm still welcome. I don't like it over there on M.net.

Not sure if I count but mine came with the turbo already installed for me



I bought the MSM instead of putting a turbo on my 97 since I prefer the NB chassis and body style over the NA.
