  1. I've got an l28 that's going to the shop. Started skipping and choking. Now won't crank. And the head gasket is leaking oil . Mechanic quoted $1300.


    Option B

    I have a l28et that needs to be rebuilt. Previous owner had an oil line bust for the turbo. ( Probably messed that up) I know he blew the factory turbo. So assuming that's $3k to rebuild. Then I need a mega squirt $1,500 for ignition and tuning. But I get to keep my 4speed and rear end.


    Option c

    Just buy a LS for $900. But then I'll need a trans and rear end.


    So with 330-400hp in mind, idk what I should do that's best bang for your buck.

  2. There was a recent discussion about this, including photos of the timing chain showing where the tensioner is. When I did the head on my 280ZX, I had no idea where it was and didn't get it secured correctly. It cost hours of extra work, and I never got the timing gear cover to seal when I tried to install it with the head in place.  I ended up paying a Z-car mechanic to do it again and get it right.
    How much was the bill ?

  3. You can't go wrong in replacing the weak original Nissan injector connection plugs.  But the odds are that that's not the cause of your "skip".  Good luck.
    I agree with you, but when my friend touched the harness that was spliced and taped, it would skip more. So I'm starting with that, and hope I get lucky. I wouldn't be surprised if the injectors are old and need to be replaced as well
