I had inquired about some compstar rods about a month ago.he was a little hostile towards me be because I hadn't jumped on them right then and there. Even left me a pretty p/m about wasting his time blah blah blah. After the dust settled after that I wanted the rods but never would respond to my texts...

parts

Hope it works out for u on the parts. Suck that we have to trust people with our money with fingers crossed that they will sent the part or that they even have the parts. Definitely beware if someone is pushy on u sending the money. I've purchased parts from here that they say like new and when u get them not o new. Would b nice to buy from guys that that have parts they are selling cuz they upgraded not buying cheap and making money on us with someone else's junk.

I have his address somewhere back home, but thats about 350 miles away at the moment.

Having said that, I bought a set of the procomps he had for sale a while ago, he shipped them fast and they were exactly what he said they were. Hopefully he will chime in soon and clear this up, seemed like a straight shooter on the phone.

Maybe his phone got cut off and he used your $ to have it turned back on...
Not many acceptable reasons for taking a man's money and then go radio silent. But I certainly hope he has one of those reasons and it woks out for you.

This guy had five sets available. Maybe you can get a set from him.:D

Looks shady to me.

Hope it works out OK for you. Good luck.

That's the same guy lol.

And I don't think anything shady is happening, or at least I hope not. Personal troubles or something maybe. Cause like I said, I got my set from him quick, and talked with him on the phone a few times. Didn't seem shady one bit, and I'm the type of person to get sketched out real fast, especially when im dealing over the intardnet.

I hope you're right, I didn't get that feeling from him, thats why I sat on it for 3wks, after that and no responses from any means of communication I started getting nervous, a simple tracking # would have avoided all this, I always provide it when shipping stuff cause I know the person on the other end is putting faith in me to be honest and the tracking # gives some reassurance, but thats me

I talked to chris (twinturbo460gt) and he is currently on vacation. This is why he hasnt been on the forum or responded to anything. He said he has shipped them after he got the money. Chris is a nice guy and I talk to him every so often. Dont think he will swindle you and I have talked to him about all of this. Hopefully you to get in contact with each other and this gets resolved. Im sure the heads are on the way, where they are in transit who knows.

I know it was the same guy. That is why I posted the link up.

The part that struck me as odd or possibly shady, was that in the 'for sale' listing he says that he upgraded his heads so he didn't need the ProComps anymore.

Now he has five sets for sale? Why five sets of heads?

Shop/dealer sell-off (clearance stickers were on the boxes). Heads were date stamped 2012 and were still unopened before I got there.

I went to meet him face-to-face and get a pair. We talked about Mustangs for a half-hour and nothing was shady, nice guy. He had 3 pair in his vehicle when I met him (Ryan and 7.5l-stx already bought theirs). I hope this issue is resolved.

I certainly hope you get this resolved. :eek:

I am a procomp dealer and you may have a set at WD cost landed to your door if that will help.

Call me if it becomes necessary.
