Default Tony's DP still around

Hey guys I haven't been on here in a while. Was just wondering if Tony that was doing the downpipes for the greddy kit was still around and how I might be able to contact him? Thanks.

instead of tracking down Tony, you could give BEGi a call....

Was looking to get a DP flange from him. I had talked with him before about a stainless flange but I lost his contact info.

begi is still working on the downpipe. I sent in my greddy kit for them to use in R&D, that was about a month ago. I haven't heard from them since they got it, my guess is they are very busy with all the projects. patience though, I am sure it will be an awesome piece.

Tony is still around, just email him, he's a busy man so it may take a few days for a reply. I plan on getting one from him because I can't justify spending so much unless it is proven with numbers that there is a large difference in spool between his and the Begi piece.

wonder why he (or anyone else) never thought to come up with a manny and DP to fit the greddy kit to a 94-97 or a 99+. With all the threads on here and m.net you know there is a market.

****. I'm really not looking forward to attempting fabrication of a downpipe for my 95.

I would imagine the are using the kit on a test mule car to build the proto-type. Then from that build a jig for production.

I called BEGI 2 days ago, was told Stephanie would call or email me, yet still I wait. I emailed Stephanie 2 am this morning, still no response. I placed my order back in September, and was promised a November delivery. I respect the fact they want to produce a high quality part, and this takes time. There customer service is second to none, and I have always been well treated when ever I called. There reaches a point when one can wait no more, I am at that point. If I receive no response by COB today, I will order the tubing to construct my own DP. Had I known I would be state side this long, I would have already constructed a new exhaust system.

After a slight adjustment I was able to get it to stop rattling. His placement of the slip joint was in a less than ideal location, it should have been further down stream.
