I purchased the head from the GreenMachine, was very swift about removing it, inspecting it, and getting back to. Appreciate it.

I've bought some exhaust and front mount parts from Leon, and everything worked out quickly. Gets a thumbs up from me. Smile

I think I paid for at least one room on the addition to his house. Smile

I have bought and sold tons of stuff with Leon. He's always very very patient and lets me know which TV shows I should be watching too (even if I don't watch them). Good guy, good friend.

Doing business with Leon is a no brainer. The technical assistance he offers when purchasing from him has saved me money in the long run. I intentionally buy new parts from Leon, because I like knowing where my money is going. Very good guy.

Leon is the one who convinced me to stick with DSMs when my 99 had a few issues right out of the gate. He has very patiently given me advice and has tolerated my numerous stupid inquiries.

I also buy all my DSM specific new parts from him with full confidence.

By far one of the best people to deal with. I have bought stuff from injectors to a motor off Leon, and never did I once ever have an issue.

I don't think much else can be said ( that hasn't already ), but I will add my thoughts. Wink I have bought more parts then I can remember over the last 10+ years from Leon, and every single transaction was a good one. Leon's technical knowledge, as well as his first hand experience, and willing to share the info, is exceptional !

Thumbs Up

Leon has always helped me out when I need it, and any part that I have bought off of him has been of great quality, and all transactions have been wonderful.

First of all, I will say that this club would not be where it is today without Leon.

Leon was the first guy in the club I bought anything from, per Greg B's recommendation. A boost gauge, K&N kit, and spark plug wires. The transaction was fine, or so I thought then. I didn't expect what was to happen a few weeks later.

I went up to the Import Event, and was running really consistent 14.8s or so all day. Leon was talking to Bruce as I was staging, and I said hi, and we talked briefly about the event and whatnot. I made some comment about how I was new to drag racing a DSM and needed a lot of practice, and (jokingly) said how I'd be in the 11s in no time. Bruce, later on that day, ran 11.4 in the original Mighty Mouse and that put him in the top 20 in the country.

Anyway, apparently Leon and Bruce I think both thought I was serious, and gave me pretty amusing "yeah right" looks.

Ever since then it's been downhill with the car. He's always been willing and ready to order parts when I needed them to feed this damn addiction, and they always are on time, and priced great.

Thanks a lot, Leon. Jerk. Rolling Eyes

I just had to add my $0.02 about Leon. With items I've purchased and sold though Leon, he has always been exemplary in every transaction I've had with him. One truly outstanding experience I had with him was my very first maintenance/upgrade to my Talon. I bought a car with a dead xfer case and Clutch. I purchased a Clutch from Leon and a New Flywheel from Mitsubishi. The install was taking place at a friends workplace overnight and we just had to be out by 6AM.

Well we got into it around 8PM and started dis-assembling the car. Once we got everything disconnected and went to install the new flywheel around 10:00PM IIRC, we found that the flywheel I received from mitsubishi was wrong Mad , Stupid for me for not realizing it sooner (although I did have a 7 bolt 92 which from what I hear is quite rare (Leon himself did not believe me until I showed him in person once))

Having nowhere else to turn, we crossed our fingers and called Leon. Sure enough he was up and just watching football on TV. He said he was certain he had at least one good flywheel on hand. So we drove out to his home and he reviewed the Flywheel I removed, finding it was still within spec, but gave me another he had that was in a bit better shape. He wished us luck, we came home and were able to complete the clutch which worked great till the day I let go of the car.

This club owes a great deal to Leon and I cannot thank him enough for answering my Noob questions and giving me assistance on a number of occasions. I'd trust this man with my first born.. Well someday when I have one of those. Laughing
