On the whole, satisfaction with either unit is probable.
BEGI.....slightly more power, significatly more complex install, expensive.
Sebring.....no intercooler, generally easier install, less expensive.
On the whole.....I don't know. I love my Sebring "enhanced" 1.9......Karl loves his BEGI "enhanced" 1.9. I can say, looking at the graphs, you get more "bang for the buck" from the Sebring unit.....however, does that come at engine life cost due to higher temps?...I don't know! My temperature gauge hasn't moved, pre/post install though.
My advise...think long and hard.....if you are willing to modify the engine, then talk to both sides...I can give you a number/person at Downing Atlanta and Karl will give you the BEGI info as well.......basically, it's more of a philosopical choice.
