Talking After a year of...

searching, reading, and searching I would like to say hi. Last November I started my never ending quest for knowledge on a FI Miata. I've been through 3 Miata's within this year, and finally found one I liked enough to slap on a turbo. I came across a white 2002 Ls with just about 30k miles. It was pulling my wallet beggin for a turbo, so the best choice was BEGi. I love the kit, install was great, support is good, and it accomplished my goals (being pushed back into the seat). I have to say this forum pushed the pole in the Texas direction and I'm glad. The best part is watching people react to this car. It's great!
By the way,
2002 LS
BEGi S4 (with largest FMIC)
gt2860RS
Xede piggyback
RC 550's
Black OZ's
Flyin Miata Exhaust
HDHCHTDD (Installed in the 2 previous Miatas and taken out because I decided I would sell that car. Saved $450, so I guess it was worth the 25+ hours of install/take out I did rahhh. The first time installing it took me and my buddy over 10 hours, then I got the hang of it haha. Love the bar tho.

I've been happy with BEGi every step of the way on my deal...and I've been a royal ***-pain. If my green car turns out to be reliable on the track, I'm going to buy a 2nd turbo kit for my daily driver miata.

nice vice grips: http://i391.photobucket.com/albums/o...8/IMG_0485.jpg

where do you live? The car looks like a nice sleeper.

Hahaha, I try not to bug them too much... Like you, I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Vice grips work great for clamps and what not. I live in MD, 30 min from Baltimore. Thanks, i just took the rad scoop off yesterday, it makes it more sleepy.
