Default 1990 Begi S2 install in the works

Still waiting for the air scoop and the MSpnp (upgraded because they forgot to send their Begi Fuel system)

Anyways, started the install, things are going fine, except I cut the vaccum line above the brake booster through the check valve...and snapped two of the exhaust manifold studs trying to get the bolts off...

Oh and the Dp doesn't line up with the stock cat, which I kind of expected..so new exhaust piping will be in the works as well.

Everything is extremely well made and nicely complete. So far the only thing that I find that I want to add is better heat wrap for the heater hoses (and add one for the brake reservoir) and also find more of those cool *** clamps Begi sends to replace the ones that are left over on the radiator hoses so they all match.

The install will be on hold until I find studs and a hose...damn holiday weekend.

I know, I know,, pics or banishment...If anyone wants to host them, I 'll email them pics of the car and *****.

Pics have been sent to wes65 who is gracious enough to host them for me. I will be out drinking beer for the rest of the day. So if you want any different pics or clarification...I will be too drunk to do it until tomorrow.

Oh and the little green car in the background is a 65 mini...

The angle is right, the distance is right, but the bolt spacing is way off...

Damn it all to ******* hell....ahh I feel better now...
I now have the studs so I can place the manifold on...except I cant get the ******* wrench on the lower center nut...

I think I am going to have to buy a POS 14 mm wrench and shave it down thinner. My Craftsman didn't work, my snap on didn't work (ok I lied, my buddies snap on didn't work)...
Well, doesn't really matter, Stephanie says my MSpnp is on order and the new pipes are being coated...couldn't finish it tonight even if I could get the manifold tightened down...
