I dont think its about being M/net nettish about things but more about being practical. Like someone the exhaust housing is only so big. I guess it goes back to that idea of will 1000K wheels really be better than my rotas.

Although I must say Im curious to see how they would get the size of a pipe to work as that is why we stayed with a 2.5 when RM prototype their part on mine. Any more and the fire wall would need a BFH

Well BEGI uses 2.5in up top and then flares to 2.75" so firewall clearance shouldnt be an issue.

I like the way you think man... I'll post pics of my race car when it's finished in a few years. It's getting smoke stacks through the roof just in front of the hatchback (mid engine diesel).

Wow - Word spreads fast around here! It is true. Yesterday we agreed to do a divorced gases downpipe for the greddy kits. I believe there is a 1.6L kit lined up, but we would still need several more development cars. So if ya'll are in the area, shoot me an e-mail for more information. So far, there are no other upgrades planned.

Ben got someone to give give them a car to make a jig for. and Ben will be purchasing one once they are down designing it (give it a week). As fars as needed more cars for development Stephanie might have been mistaken. When they build my T3 downpipe I sent them my turbo and they used that as their template to build others.

It sounded like Corky was excited to get his paws on a greddy 1.6 (He said something like "uhh... duh, yes" when asked if he'd fab the dp next week), but disappointed it would only be for a couple of days. They were not interested in me shipping them my mani and turbo. Maybe he's considering offering other goodies into the market, and actually needs a complete development platform. I dunno, that's speculation. Maybe if BRG leaves his car a while, he'll find a shiny new surprise under the hood. Maybe I'm completely wrong--and it's certainly not place to say. At minimum, he's gettin the hook up on a sweet downpipe.

He spent a day fabbing mine, so you never know. I'm pretty sure the use a universal bottom half, so all they gotta do is build the top half to fit.

Who did the development on FM's greddy intake and the I/C kit they used to sell? Was it Bell?

If it wasn't -30*C outside today I'd take my manifold/turbo/DP off and send it to Bell for the winter. For the cost BEGI should just purchase a kit, even a used one. OR offer a trade in for someone to upgrade to the Series Z.

If I wasn't so @#$%^ far from Midland, TX they could use my car for a template. I'm in for a divorced WG DP after the first of the year.

I will be dropping off my 91 BRG at Bell Engineering on Tuesday (12/05). They will have access to my BRG for the required time needed to fabricate the downpipe.
