I dont think so, I just think they partnered.begi and fm were one company at one time werent they?
One correction, I do not believe corky made the Aerodyne kits. Gerhard Schruff engineered the Aerodyne kits with the VATN turbochargers. Gerhard now works for Bell Engineering.Corky Bell used to make all the turbo kits that FM sold. Corky Bell also made the Aerodyne kits that PBC used to sell too. But at some point FM decided they could do better so they parted ways.
Corky did hang onto certain ideas longer than necessary. For example in his book he thought the best IC would be a wide, short pass IC (lots of tubes, but short). Whereas most everyone including all the major japanese tuners, all go for the long pass IC. Recently Corky has acknowledged his mistake and you can see that his new kits (and FM's new kits) all have the long pass crossflow ICs.
Dude, Corky Bell's kits are Proven...the end.Im sure the begi stuff is good now but FM is PROVEN and thats what counts most
Gerhard made the Aerodyne turbo, but all the other pieces, manifolds, piping, Ic, were all made by BEGI. The CARB exemption had BEGI's name on it too.One correction, I do not believe corky made the Aerodyne kits. Gerhard Schruff engineered the Aerodyne kits with the VATN turbochargers.
