B&G opinions

I am looking to go turbo in a fox and my interest has turned from the local new mexico guys to the B&G kit. I like the owners no BS or fluff style. What are you all's opinions on these kit. Please only comment if you have owned a kit or own a kit. I see alot of people talking stuff down when they have never experienced or owned a product. I have seen guys in other threds talk smack about this base 2500 dollar kit not having a turbo which is wrong. I can read and their site has good info now I want opinions of kit experiences. I am not looking for pretty just power and low key and I love the ceramic black to keep it low key.

Thanks, Louis

I don't have a kit, but I'm a vendor on the same site as him and you can't get a kit from a better company. Anyone talking bad doesn't know what they are talking about. Especially this thing I'm reading now that his "kit" doesn't come with a turbo ? Com'on
Long story short, they have striven very hard for their name, you won't be disappointed.

I bought one of Brian's first complete kits for my 95 GTS and I ran into some self-induced fit issues with the aftermarket K-member and custom solid motor mounts. Not only did he answer the phone and call me back late at night and on a weekend, but he ended up making a custom modification to the driver's header at a VERY reasonable price.

If I'm ever in the market again for a turbo kit, it will be a B&G...

awesome guys. viewed a ton of positive threads on turbomustangs.com. Really liked how brian addressed any issues with no BS. I posted a thread there to before I started reading. After reading all the threads I have made up my mind to try one of their kits. Real quick question to you guys that own the kit. How is the black ceramic coating holding up?

That Looks sharp! thanks for the pic. love them march brackets thats what I use. here is a stupid question as I don't know much about boost. I built this engine last year and my compression 9.6:1. I know most guys run low compression is this to much?

i have 9:6:1 on my setup and i will be running 7-10psi that will be fine but i am also using a standalone (megasquirt)
Plus there are guys out there who put more boost on higher compression motors and are fine. so you will be ok just dont go crazy and get a good tune and it all will be fine

I have a b&G hotside as well with the 3.5 downpipe everything fit pretty damn good i would rather a 3'' downpipe but i got the setup new off here from someone who didnt want it so i didnt have a say in that. Brain is a stand up guy answered all my questions just call and you will def be happy when you get everything.
Good luck
