i think thats pretty much it
i have a 3" DP, which means i have a 3" straight thru exhaust with a magnaflo muffler.

my dyno graph is in my sig and in my build thread, and in the dyno section under SOFLA dyno day

Let us know how it goes, this could be a great kit, china has been building some much improved stuff from the old crap they used to put out.

It is a Begi-S with a chinese turbo which Bell will accept responsibility for. I don't see why this thread has not been locked yet. Yes we all understand 1400 bucks is a lot of money, but in reality 500 of that is probably the turbo. You can buy a used garrett for that kind of money. There is nothing wrong with the turbo even though it's probably made by children in a sweatshop.

If Corky can trust the things, it should be more than enough reassurance your **** will be in check.

I jumped in on Friday before their price increases. The turbo has me slightly worried, but I'm under the impression that such a reputable company would not sell that kit without some reasonable confidence in it. I would probably upgrade to a Garrett ball bearing down the road.

Considering how the economy is going, if Corky raised the prices of kits made here just so he can pay his employees a little more, I'm good ok with that. I'm sure no one at BEGI is getting 100k bonuses this year.

BTW thats not a knock on Poobs, I think he's cool!

Just talked with Steph and I can still order a kit without the 10% increase. So I am looking at the Shang. kit & want to upgrade to the SS cooland (+159) and clutch lines (+35). Seems like a good idea. Also, I think I want to streth my budget to include the Separated Gases Downpipe in mild steel (+100 option) Getting it in Stainless Steel (+200) is a bit too much right now. Is it a big difference, I know that the stainless steel won't rust, but the car is garage kept and will never see the rain/snow. Performance wise, is there a big difference with the Seperated Gases DP? I know it is supposed to spool faster, just wondering if there is a direct comparison. Car will be a autoX/track/sunday drive car. Thanks for any thoughts guys.
