I ordered a 0.5mm overbore piston set, matching rings, and some conrod bearings. Got everything today (shipping took 6 business days), and it's all of very high quality (from what I can tell, it's all aftermarket manufacturers, but made in Japan).

I am VERY pleased with my order. Two Thumbs Up!

I have the same sentiments about him.

I ordered rear control rods from him, and in the message to seller box, I specified "These MUST be the shorter ones for 89-94 Swifts. My car is a 93. If they are the long ones for the 95 and newer Swifts, I don't want them, please cancel this transaction and email me if they are the wrong part".

I got an E-mail back from him saying "I have the correct parts however the price is way wrong. I can give you refund if you like. They are $94.88 each not sure why the price was way wrong in the catalog I am sorry. Let me know if you want them or if you just would like a full refund."

I cancelled, and thanked him for his honesty, and said that I'd give him my thumbs up here at TeamSwift, where I was referred to him through.

So, here's my opinion of John's business practices. :thumbsup:

Even though I am yet to buy any parts of him (yet) His prices are very good, and he replies to emails fast.

My experience with them was not good, a year ago buy 8 exhaust valves.

I had offered Italian valves brand "Osvát" are 5 valves but they sent me to that mark and 3 valves used in bad quality.

not recommend
