Anyone with half a brain (including every GReddy owner) will tell you to go BEGi.

Well, I've built my own kit for under 1,000 I'd say. Granted it isn't on yet, but that's a matter of me not having time, still being a student and not having my MS tuned yet. My kit did involve getting a really cheap partial AVO kit though. This however required a lot of research, rebuilding my a 50 dollar turbo and several other things that someone just looking to get started should avoid.

Go with Begi.

Woot, another synesthete. Hi there.

Anyway, the kit is $1685 plus shipping. I got my Greddy kit new for $900 shipped -- someone bought it new then changed his mind. $785+ isn't a small amount of money, so be sure about how much you want to spend.

Personally, I wish I'd bought the BEGi.

Speaking from experience if you go the begi route be prepared to have some down time. They make a quality product, but the install is a little more in depth than the greddy. Either way, there are plus sides to both kits. The initial buy in for the greddy kit can be found for a great deal cheaper and with the extra money you can probably buy an intercooler and megasquirt and be at or near a base begi kit. However, with the begi kit you get a good quality turbo set up and excellent product support.
