Default Begi S3 IC piping issues.

Hello to all. For the past couple years I have put my miata project on the back burner. In mid 2014 I purchased the Begi S3 kit and had a ton of motivation to get it slapped on there, just no time to do it. Four deployments later I've decided to just go through Briggs motorsports to install the kit for me since he's local and seems to do some great work. We are running into issues with the turbo side and intake side intercooler piping that is causing some headaches on getting the car on the road before the holidays. If we are doing anything wrong some tips would be much appreciated, if it's just poor build quality of the kit....well that's a bummer.
P.s. Intake side may be due to the radiator, but I can't imagine they only expect their kits to be used with stock width radiators.
Pics below.
No room for the reroute

BOV pipe comes out at an odd angle
Who needs to close their hood anyway?

Yeah,some of your kit is different than what mine was and I still had to make modifications.Had to use a cone type filter so it would fit and a crossflow radiator,because I wanted to,but it lined up well with the coolant reroute.It looks like the fitting on your radiator is out pretty far,may just be the picture. The bypass valve tubing is different as well. The thing is, I have a 91 with a 1.8 installed and put in a used 94 kit. A new kit for your particular car should be plug and play,but welcome to the world of Begi. Hopefully your shop can help with some fabrication. Good luck.Welcome to the turbo rabbit hole!

Looks like a BEGI kit.

They all fit like that. You should have gone to the Chinese kit on eBay. It's higher quality.
