oh I know you would have solved the issue, you offered to fix it on the phone and instead I opted to get a free replacement for the needle valve on the fuel pressure regulator (i broke it) to not have downtime. Really not trying to bash you guys or anything cuz it was no big deal. On another note, you have an email from me regarding a carb sticker

I purchase my piece of BEGI DP yesturday, sent in photo of your Turbo.... made sure they got the right fit. Everything was a great expereince, especailly the easy conversation with Stephenie (though, I had to call 2am Hong Kong time). $285, with the quality and service, ++ charged on Credit Card... can't beat that! +$85 for the airfare to Hong Kong!

+ 1 !!

Well.. considering the fact, if I were to ship that into Canada... 15% Tax(depending on which Province) + Freight = around $80...! 6000miles flight for the DP doesn't seem that much more expensive anymore!

That isn't bad shipping on a large item. I think my Tony DP and test pipe cost about $60 to ship into Canada including everything.

Stephanie was very nice on the phone when I ordered mine too, but IDK if the three-different-flanges part was known at the time I placed my order.

...hope it fits, if not I'm sure they'll work with me.

I was talking about the BEGis that were returned, I'm sure I could modify one to fit.

We may have some returned ones that can be modified. But no news yet.

The DP has been beat to death on the Subaru forums, for me I like the simplicity of the bell mouth or the FM. But that is just my Pref. I think Tony's manifold is a work of art and might sway me toward any other product he makes.
