I haven't purchased anything from him, but I would like to comment on what kind of guy he is. Greg helped me with my center diff., after installing the tranny I noticed it had a problem going through the gears.

Greg made the trip all the way up to my house ( so I wouldn't have to pull the tranny out again ) to take care of it. That is something he didn't have to do, that's just the kind of guy he is. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him, he's a stand up guy!

Greg doesn't sell much stuff. But I've known him since High School. He has been kind enough to share his garage with me over the past 5 years give or take. Couldn't ask for a better guy!

JoJo "middle-manned" a deal where I was buying a manifold and wastegate from Matt since he was going on vacation and I am impatient. He gained nothing from the deal and did it just to be nice. <3 ya.

Even though Greg bought his black cherry car out from under me, he's still a generally ok guy. Razz

I met Greg a few years ago when I set the tension on his his timing belt for him, and he tried to offer me some cash for doing the work, which I refused and told him that people in the club had helped me out when I was getting started; just do the same for someone else in the club somewhere along the line. He's definitely done that over the past couple of years. Smile

He's absolutely established himself as a solid guy. Through his work as a Mitsu tech, and just as a member here in general, he's always willing to help out and lend a hand, and he's turning into one heck of a mechanic.

Absolutely trustworthy and I'd have zero problems doing business with him. Just keep your cheap beer and Jaeger locked up near him. Very Happy

What a guy! After only really talking once with him, he agreed to come to my house at 11 pm to help me with my tranny. Even though he had to do homework, he proceeded to work on my tranny until it was on.

I can not thank him enough for doing that. An extremely good guy in my book, and I would do anything to help him out! Very Happy

I would be remiss if I didn't post up in this thread.

I replaced the ball joints on my F250 this week. It was the most hellish job I've attempted thus far on any vehicle, and this is including all of the stuff I've been through in the past year or two with my GSX. Greg kept me motivated and sane through the process, and was an enormous help. In return, I kept him well hydrated from the beer fridge and well fed, but considering how much he busted his ass in the garage with me this week, that was CHEAP.. believe me.

Greg, I owe you a huge one. Thanks again.

JoJo Baggins came through for me once again yesterday. I won't even attempt to describe the tremendous help he was in a tough situation. Thanks again Greg. Cool

Newb's, take note, this is how you do it.

Greg responded to my posting for the cell phones. We decided on a mutually convenient time to meet. He showed up with the asking price in cash. We hung out shootin the breeze for a bit, then he left quietly so as not to wake up the neighbors.

Class act

Time: Check
Place: Check
Success: Check

Greg did the Evo clutch swap for me in 6.5 hrs.. it would have been faster if the tranny shifted right the first time!! He's a standup guy and no BSing! Awesome job!

Also putting a good word in for James L: JLEVO8 for the help and the lift!!

I cannot believe I missed out on recommending Greg earlier than this! He is one of the oustanding people who help me a lot -- my recommending him earlier must have slipped through the craks! I will do so now!!

Greg is a fantastic guy to deal with!! He has helped me out too many times to count -- he has sol d me some good stuff -- which I have been very happy with -- and has done work for me as well which I have been super pleased with.

I would not hesitate to have Greg do ANY DSM job for me -- or deal with him on any part transaction. I highly reccomend Greg J. for parts sales - or DSM work.

Although I have never bought / sold anything from Greg, I can say, him and I have worked together on several occasions, and Greg is a very knowledgeable, hard working tech. If I were looking to have work done ( that I didn't feel like doing ) I would not hesitate to call him. Thumbs Up

I have had a couple dealings with Jojo and it is always easy, like it should be.

Thanks for the snappy ratchet.

Greg not only was patient enough to wait a bit while I decided what I was doing with my car, but also did most of the work removing the turbo and injectors so he could buy them. Smile

Paid in cash and helped me knock off a few beers afterwards. Can't ask for a better transaction. Thanks, Greg!

Now I understand why his car hasn't been at the track, he is busy doing SLAP contests.

I asked JoJo to pick something up from Mitsubishi for me since I never get out of work in time and he had it the next day after I left the money, couldn't have been easier for me. Thanks JoJo.

Greg has been a huge help to me. Some may know of the problem I had with my car (search Evo Motor Destruction), but even before all that I remember emailing Greg from Iraq asking him some off the wall questions. He always would message me back with answers and never seemed to get upset about being harassed with such dumb questions.

And to the recent issue with my motor going kaput, from the minute I got my car to Westboro Mitsubishi until probably even yesterday he was helpful. Helping me get the car back to "stock" and giving me advice along the way and never once blowing smoke up my ass about what could be wrong or done, etc. Very straight forward, top notch guy.

Thanks Greg!

Jojo hooked me up with some injectors cheap. It might have been the corona that was talking but either way he hooked it up. Also gave me a ride in his car to see how the Red felt. As always a great guy to deal with.

Great guy, very easy to communicate with. My girlfriend just purchased his old VR4. Everything and anything that is, or was wrong with the car was explained, no matter how little the problem was.
