Anyone know what happened to Merv? I purchased a turbo kit from him over a year ago and I am still waiting for the exhaust and intake piping and filter. I have not had any communication with him in over six weeks.

Thanks for your help,

Merv is a standup guy, I'm sure it is an oversight. I correspond through email all the time with him.

I hope that is the case. I have sent emails once a week for the last six weeks with no response. If possible could you pm me the email you use?

Thanks,

Not sure

I have purchased a header system from him in the past. He was great to work with, however he said that he lived in Australia, but the items were shipped from Japan or Taiwan or something crazy like that.

My guess is he travels quite a bit. I hope everything is ok. If he is ok, then he will get back to you. That is why this does not sound good.

Good luck.

Hey, I know Merv very well too. Last year he gave me a lot of advice and helped me source all the bits for my turbo conversion (and my brother's 964 turbo kit) and was the middle man between me and his US suppliers.

I live close to him and can pop in to see him if you like? I do know for a fact he was extremely stressed about his wife's health as she was hospitalised for a few weeks and has been in and out of hospital, so that may have something to do with his lack of response at the moment.

Agree, he's a stand-up guy, but maybe just a little distracted right now. I'll go see him and hope all is well

I am glad to see all the good responses about Merv. If his lack of communication his because of his wifes health, I can wait for the parts some more, my engine is still apart.

James if you do see Merv, tell him I hope all is well.

Thanks for your help guys

He also helped me out with a tonne of advice with my conversion, even ordered some of the parts for me and never expected any monetary returns. He's a great guy going though a very rough patch, I'm sure he'll sort you out asap.

I correspond with Merv quite a bit on the turbo stuff and have done some business with both Merv and Spence. Both good guys. Have not heard from him lately which is unusal. Hope everything is OK.

Merv is a good guy, but something has to be up. I would file this with the FBI's internet division. That will get the ball rolling for you

Last I heard he sold up and had moved interstate for a while for some treatment for his wife's medical condition. Hope he's OK!

I was told that too, but to stiff somene on parts paid for two years ago in good faith is not right.
