i bought my 20g turbo and fmic kit off him about a year ago. he was easy to contact and very helpful. we met up, chatted for a while. and i even had a few questions and small problems down the road and he was more than helpful with anything i needed.

pleasure dealing with him, and would again in a heartbeat.

I bought some of my first items from Kevin and they did me very well. He's always answers all the questions that I have.

Kevin is an upfront abrasive touch-hole and has a wealth of knowledge, just kind of stingy with his sister.

Kevin pretty much got me started in the world of DSM's, and is why I got as far as I did with mine. He never hesitated to help me no matter how basic or newbish I was, and I met him at the Shootout, real good guy.

Bought my 91 talon off Kevin and he has been very helpful with it and the issues that I have ran into. Helped me install dsmlink and get it running right.

I don't think I ever bought anything off of Kevin, but I must say Kevin had one of the biggest, positive impacts on my DSM experience... His expertise, helpfulness, and ability to maintain an astounding positive attitude, oh, and resourcefulness, made life so much easier when all of the Gremlins came out to play.....

Even though I haven't bought anything from Kevin, I owe a lot to him for his knowledge, experience and encouragement. I remember towards the end of the 2001 race season, he and I used to be at NED at least once a week if not both nights trying to extract the last ounce of performance from our setups. I was still a newb with modded DSMs. He was instrumental in showing me what to do and just being there, since I sure as heck wasn't going to put my car through its paces without someone knowing what to do Very Happy

I bought some cams, from Jewbag. The cams look great and he went out of his way to make it easier for me to pick them up.

He's wicked smart too!!

I purchased a manual steering rack from Kevin the other day. Not only did he deliver it to me, but he practically gave it away on pricing. He was also OK with me paying him the following week. Thanks for taking care of me Kevin!

Bought a Bj's sheet metal intake manifold off him a few weeks back. Good price, I met him at ricer's gave him the money, BS'd a bit with him. He even cleaned the piece up a bit. As always nothing went wrong.

I bought a "moder" from Kevin, he was very flexible with the payment and gave me a good deal. In my book he is a good guy.

Just bought an exhaust off of Kevin. Not to mention he came along for the ride to his garage which was a half an hour drive. He also answerd every question i had, and gave me some good advice. Plus, i got a great exhaust for a incredible price. Thanks a lot kevin for everything.

Oh, and he also gave me a ride in his Evo. i have not been able to sleep since... Shocked !

If Kevin ever decides to sell his house someone buy it ASAP! He has a MONEY TREE in his backyard! I have owed him $300 dollars for the past month and have tried to meet up with him but things always fall through. Very Happy Seems like an awesome guy though, sold me a 1g head, but before he did he brought it to Edgars to make sure it was in top condition. A+ in my book Cool

Kevin came by today to finally get the $300. that has been collecting dust, and also help me out with my never ending project. Kevin quickly found the problem (I wish it took him a little longer to find the problem so I didn't seem so incompetent Laughing but with Kevin's knowledge and skill set that wouldn't have been possible.) Spent some time talking to him and taking a look at his impressive evo. Very nice guy, and he def knows his stuff A+++

I know I have bought more than a few things from Kevin in the past - things go well every time, even though I usually low-ball him on the price and bother him to fix my crap tuning at the track.

Plus, Kevin is one of the most knowledgeable people I have spoken with - and he's ALWAYS hilarious.

Kevin is also great for giving good info and advice, unless you are a "wanker," "douchenozzle" or "pork sword swallower."

Another good vote for Kevin

I purchased Kevins V-band exhaust for the Evo this weekend. He drove up more than half way to meet me and I was late due to an endless amounts of crap after I left work, but never the less he waited for me and delivered the part. Transaction was easy, he's a nice guy and great to talk too. Thanks again Kevin.

I guess I forgot to add something from before, but I have had a couple of great transactions with Kevin. Bought a FMIC off of him, and transaction went perfect. He had it extremely well wrapped for me during shipment (in his truck) and gave his usual helpful pointers.

I also sold him an item, and he paid cash when he said he would...even threw in an extra $5 Very Happy

Bottom line is he is a great guy to deal with, and plays a pretty mean guitar! (on GH3 of course - it's all about the hammer-ons!)

Sold this pork sword swallower a Tial 44 and once again he put up with my bullshit run arounds and no-shows. Why anyone deals with me anymore is quite baffling. All hand jobs aside Kevin is the man and quite the pleasure to deal with. Wink

"Hello, my name is Petey, and I saw Kevin J. at the race track where I enjoyed his company. After much entertaining banter, I offered Kevin a fair price for an auto part that he was not currently using. He quickly obliged. Kevin and I had a wonderful time together that day, as we skipped into the sunset.

I would like to sincerely thank Kevin as he is a stand up gentleman and a scholar.

-Petey"
