My name is Josh also screen name 'Josh' on the tt. forum. I routinely have worked with Alex on many projects, including swaps, Alex and I work out of his garage in Hamilton NJ mostly on the weekends. We have swapped more cars than I can remember, including both of our own cars. We have a solid customer base in the NJ/NY/PA area for all sorts of 300zx related work. You can search Alex's name "spyhunter" on 300zx club and tt.net and see reviews of the work thats been done over the years. We only work on the nissan Z32 chasis (90-96 300zx). Seeing you want to swap your TT motor for another TT motor I have a few questions for you.

1. The motor to be swapped, do you want to do a 60k mile service on it?
WHAT WOULD THAT INVOLVE SPECIFICALLY?
PROS & CONS?
ADDITIONAL COST(S) FOR EACH?
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IT IF IT WAS YOUR 300ZX TT ?

2. What other parts do you want to replace while the motor is out? Clutch, exhaust parts, ect ect.
WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND SPECIFICALLY?
PROS & CONS?
ADDITIONAL COST(S) FOR EACH?
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IT IF IT WAS YOUR 300ZX TT ?

3. Is the car auto or manual?
MANUAL

4. What's the time frame for the swap to be dropped off/ect.?
I COULD DROP OFF 300ZX TT & PALLETIZED ENGINE WITHIN A WEEK OR SO ...(STARTED MY MECHANIC SEARCH TODAY !)

I WANT TO BE FAIR TO ALL WHO HAVE CONTACTED ME AND WILLING TO:
TAKE THE TIME TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES WITH 300ZX TT ENGINE SWAPS AND INDIVIDUAL MECHANICS/SHOPS
AND ULTIMATELY ADVISE ME ON HOW TO "PROPERLY" RESTORE MY BABY Z TO 100% FACTORY ORIGINAL CONDITION !
I WILL REVIEW ALL ESTIMATES, EXPERIENCE & CREDENTIALS WITH MY UNCLE (A 40 YEAR MECHANIC AND DEAR FRIEND BUT NOT EXPERIENCED WITH THIS CAR).

I HAVE ANOTHER VEHICLE TO DRIVE UNTIL 300ZX TT IS COMPLETED.
I HAVE NEVER AND WILL NEVER "RUSH" ANY MECHANIC !

I UNDERSTAND "TIME IS MONEY" AND THIS ENGINE SWAP IS VERY COMPLICATED PER MY LENGTHY PHONE CALL TO KYLE PUCKETT.

I WANT THE MECHANIC TO HAVE ACTUALLY PERFORMED SEVERAL ENGINE SWAPS IN A
1996 300ZX TWIN TURBO WITH MANUAL TRANS
AND TO TAKE THEIR TIME AND DO IT "RIGHT" !

I WILL NOT NEED CAR UNTIL "EARLY SPRING" ! HOW'S THAT FOR "PATIENCE" !

I PROMISE TO BE "FAIR, HONEST, PATIENT AND TREAT MECHANIC LIKE FAMILY " AND OF COURSE EXPECT TO BE TREATED THE SAME BY MECHANIC !

I WOULD LIKE A WRITTEN "TIME FRAME" OF EACH "DETAILED STAGE" OF THIS PROJECT FOR RECORD KEEPING, HISTORICAL & RESALE VALUE AS WELL AS JUST "PIECE OF MIND"

I APPRECIATE THE DUAL EFFORT HERE AS I HAVE COME TO REALIZE THAT 2 MECHANICS MAY BE BETTER THAN ONE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS COMPLEX VEHICLE.
LOOKING FORWARD TO ALL YOUR QUESTIONS AS THE MORE YOU KNOW "THE BETTER THE ESTIMATE AND THINGS WILL GO" !
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME
BOB

Thanks

Josh
