That is the general opinion. Just about every thread confirms this.

But hey: its good parts from a well known company, so if you're not in a rush then you're set. Just plan ahead and DEFINITELY expect delays

Yeah that's what I've heard that there good kits and the only ones really in my price range, cus I definitely can't afford an fm kit. Yeah and I'm also undecided whether I should turbo or just do the 1.8 swap cus I'd still be alittle worried with putting a begi on a motor with 193k miles and a valve that I can hear going bad.

spending 13 seconds on their site, they're from TX, so unless you're from TX, you will not be charged sales tax (I dont even know if TX has a sales tax)

Yeah but some sites still charge you tax, and I wanted to know if this happened to anyone in past experiences. May sound stupid but that's happened to me before :/

No, I don't, sorry. I used to, but I have no idea what happened to them. Some one else probably does though. Check the for sale threads.

"Yeah but some sites still charge you tax, and I wanted to know if this happened to anyone in past experiences. May sound stupid but that's happened to me before :/"

The reason some vendors charge sales tax to out of state purchasers is because they are incorporated in the state where the purchaser is from and by law they have to. Examples of this are large corporations like Microsoft or Dell which are often incorporated in many states in order to have repair facilities or outlet stores.

I think you would be safe from sales tax with BEGI...but then again I can't say for sure.

I only have to charge sales tax if you are a resident of Texas. Texas does not require we collect taxes on out of state sales. Nor do we have locations in other states to worry about.

I stand by Begi. Every part i've purchased from, i receive a tracking number within few days of ordering. Its clearly not their fault if something is on back order nationally. Theres no reason to be bitching at the wrong people here especially when they are doing everything they can to make it right. As far as plugs go what did u go with? 1 step cooler are recommended.
