Rehoboth, MA 02769

Ripped off member, never sent payment for parts received. Will not respond to PM's, emails or calls. Do not deal with this member, buying or selling.


Miami, FL

Seller has been less than accurate in his descriptions of parts he's selling. 5 members of this forum have been dissatisfied with the items they have received or never received them at all. A member of another forum has also been scammed for a large sum of money. This user is currently under investigation by his local authorities. It is strongly advised not to deal with this member under any circumstances.


SonomaGTlover - Jon Rust - Mirrado Graphics
O'fallon, IL

Jon was selling vinyl decal kits as well as electric fan mounts to forum members and collected money for items he never delivered.
This is the second time Jon has fallen excessively behind on his commitments to the SyTy community.
At this time we do not recommend placing any orders with Mirrado Graphics or Jon directly until all of those who have yet to receive their orders are satisfied.


Sells junk parts with fake receipts for performance parts, people think they are getting performance parts, but end up with junk. Also makes garbage aluminum radiator supports which break and case hundreds of dollars in damage. Do not purchase anything from this seller!

Multiple members out of money including wicked, goalie29 and odium who received faulty parts from user "FLNSUV". This guy has had a few other shady deals go down and doesn't return emails, PM's, or phone calls.
Another member saw the posting above and had this to add:

Keith Mease - South Jersey / Philly area - MPE, MPE Performance Fabrication
Has ripped off/scammed dozens of SyTy, Turbo Buick and Impala SS owners. Impossible to reach when he doesn't want to be found (or he's in jail), but does respond well to threats, lawyers and law enforcement. Deal with at your own risk, you have been warned.--


PEP Precision Engineering Performance
Ripped off multiple board members. Do Not Deal With *Finalized*


Tony DeQuick - Chicago, Illinois area
Formerly of Charged Air Systems (CAS). Sells radiators, CAC's, etc. Does not ship parts in a timely manner. Does not reply to emails. Does shoddy work. Has a very poor eBay feedback rating and changes his Ebay ID frequently. Has been banned from PayPal. Bad reputation in many automotive arenas, turbo Buicks, LS1's, SyTy's, etc. DO NOT DEAL WITH.


Torrey Ward
SyTy owner. According to a SyTy Vendor who built a motor for Mr. Ward, he has not paid his balance due on the labor/parts for the engine build. According to the SyTy Vendor, Mr. Ward was taken to small claims court for the outstanding balance. The court ruled in favor of the Vendor, but Mr. Ward still hasn't paid. Other vendors should proceed with caution when dealing with Mr. Ward.

  • Typhoon Frame

    I have a frame, left by a customer who's project changed and frame is no longer needed. Be a great one to work on while your truck is driving.

    I could also entertain the option of building it into a nice rolling chassis for someone, either stock or fully modified with custom suspension, etc. Details can be worked out.

    As it sits someone can have it rather cheap, I can arrange to have it at nats.

    There is also a 8.5" 10 bolt rear end as well. Axles are at my house, but I could make arrangements to get them to Jeff's. The axle is out of a 1997 2 door chevy blazer 4.3 4wd 5 speed. I paid $400 for it, but open to offers. Stock gears.

      Is there a difference between a Typhoon frame a regular 4x4 blazer frame? I am looking for one to start playing with
      1993 GMC Typhoon #0756, under construction: 60mm Turbo, A2A, Meth, 3" JSM DP, 4 bolt splayed mains, Eagle H-Beam Rods, TRW Forged Pistons, Custom Steve Morris Cam, and a pinch of rust for weight savings.
