Sure..here is an update of you trash talking BEGI from clubroadster

reckless_abandon:
actually, in my experience, they are second to many and fall far behind everyone else in quality and customer service.
i ordered a stainless steel downpipe in the fall, it didnt come with any of the hardware that was supposed to come with it. the turbo flange didnt match up, the piping rubs up agains the bell housing, and it doesnt line up with the cat.
i called them about it. they first kicked it off by lying to me and saying they shipped me out a replacement. when i realized no replacement was coming, i continued to ask them about it (which i do so weekly) and i still dont have a replacement.

its HELLA shitty. i've just been driving around with the exhaust all leakin everywheres for almost 6 months now... hence why begi is not to be trusted.

Maybe you should try using the phone.

I haven't heard back from steph yet, but its only been a bit over two months. With all the s kits likely being ordered I am sure they are busy. They didn't have anything to work with until they got my kit so give it time.

Actually Stephanie has been pretty sick lately. if you want to talk to someone call the shop. E-Mail isnít the best way to communicate with them.

I'm assuming the above is correct.. I've emailed them and not received a response which is very unusual.

We have been up front an honest about the fitment of the Greddy pipe. It is currently being worked on. But it is not like we can build several of these in one day, much less design one in one day. We have found that the manifold tronik sent us is very different from the original manifold used. So we have had to start over from scratch. As I have been out of the office more than I have been there, e-mail responses are slower. I apologize, but I have had to take care of my health lately.

That is the latest info. If someone wants more info, please send me a PM or e-mail. If I have already told you that, I do not have any newer info to tell you, and will be in touch when I do.

Crap.

Now where am I going to get a downpipe upgrade for this thing?

Or is it possible I have the manifold that worked with the original design, but if so how would you even be able to tell?

I don't think this means that they can't make a new downpipe, it just means that as was suspected, and most likely why the begi DP didn't fit everyone, greddy made changes to the manifold design over the years. Nothing saying that your manifold won't be the same as the one I sent them.
There are other options for Dp's, if you don't want to wait, look into them!

Wasn't the original manifold an ETD replacement? Or am I remembering that wrong?

the one they used to make the orignal begi DP or the one I sent them? Can't speak to the first, and indeed I did not buy my greddy kit new,but I am fairly certain that the manny I sent was a greddy. I really hope it was, since that would be the most helpful

The original manifold was a replacement for the Greddy one. I am fairly certain that the manifold Tronik sent is a Greddy one. When we bolted it up to the car, the downpipe does not even come close to fitting.
