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.

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.

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.

I had a deal go wrong with Flynsuv as well. It took just under 1 month to get a set of wires from him. He only shipped them after I filed a case with Paypal. He waited until the very last day to respond (the time limit for Paypal). I ultimately sent them back to him at my cost because I couldn't wait for 6 weeks to get a set of wires. I heard every excuse in the book when he actually did contact me.

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.

Conley Performance
Originally posted by fivetodrive

I picked up a Typhoon in Texas that had a $5000 dollar rebuilt engine from Conley performance with only 1500 miles on the rebuild. And a warranty on his workmanship... When I test drove it it ran great so I bought it. 250 miles later a rocker arm stud broke (looks like it was over-torqued according to every shop I took it to) and it pretty much killed the engine.

When I got it home and I started to remove the engine not one the six bolts holding the engine to the tranny was tight. Not even the motor mount bolts were tight. I was able to remove the bolts with my fingers. It was the first time I had all six extentions on my air-rachet ready to go. Even after many calls Chris Conley still says that the failure wasn't his fault the stud just broke...

My favorite line was when he told me he was glad that the mechanic that worked on my Ty dosen't work for him any longer.

The rebuild was shit as well. When I pulled the pistons out they were so tight on the rods that the rod would sit straight up when the piston was laid flat on the counter...

Also here is another page with some more info on Conley...
