I would NOT use them..

No phone number red flag#1

Not taking credit cards or pay pal #2

Unless these guys are trying to cut way down on expenses I would say its a total sham company.

Sounds fishy, Google the address. Google map shows it's a small busines park. There are other businesses in the complex. Call some of his neighbors. Ask if he's really there and legit.

I found posts about him on other sites. They were positive.

Latecomer to the thread, but I have used their LS parts, and they aren't a scam per se, but definitely a small business, and sometimes of questionable quality. They do seem to be the only business making certain conversion parts however.

I did exchange emails with them in late 2018 when I asked questions about their products, but haven't purchased yet.
Checked with Nevada government department who cover licenses ect, they are a real company near reno. mf

let me know if they are doing 140 parts like intake and header
I would like close to a hooker race header for the 140...
wish I had bought one back in 1979...
these days there is good fab stuff out there with water cutting etc..
modern tig..
stuff we did not have back in the old school machine shop.
it was all burn table stuff...

I purchased their engine mount kit and oil pan w/ pickup kit via check this last week and very happy with the quality, however I'm a little unsure of the mount installation. Not very "drop-in" as I'd hoped.
