Any suggestions on where to find a good shop to let them finish up my 240 hybrid project? The last shop I had it in got closed due to building sale. It's got an l28 and tranny installed but no plumbing or electrical. Ends some bodywork put on it, flares etc.... In the Los Angeles area if anyone knows a builder!!
Hey everyone, I own a 1971 240z with a vg30e motor swap that was done by a previous owner. I'm looking for more power and have read up quite a bit on the nA to turbo conversions. I have found a 1985 300zx turbo donor car and I'd like to do the conversion. I'm no mechanic so i do need help. Does anyone have any shop or mechanic recommendations for this type of work?
I apologize, I'm sure this has been asked before, I did do a little searching but nothing specific came up with the terms I used. I took my car into my local mechanic this morning, and he said most likely I needed a head rebuild, and a clutch job, he quoted me at $1200 for the head rebuild, sounded a little pricey to me. does anybody know roundabouts what I should be spending at a shop to have my head rebuilt? I live in Long Beach, CA any shops that you could recommend would be appreciated as well. all cylinders are good except my 5th cylinder which is fouling the spark plug quite badly.
Hey guys! I'm Jordan, I'm 21, an Aerospace Engineering student, and I'm looking for some good jobs for the summer. Good meaning skillset good, not money. My parents are going through a divorce, and I'm the only one that knows cars well enough to be any use besides my dad, who will no longer be around. I want to learn everything I can for my own good. People are becoming less mechanically inclined, they just give it to someone else to fix. I want to know what I'm doing, and how things work. Money doesn't really mean s*** to me, I'll be graduating next year, and I think mechanical and repair skills will help me tremendously in my field I've looked up some local garages in my area (Cranberry, PA) and I'm wondering if they'd even take me. I'm going to go around and ask tomorrow regardless, but I want to know if I'm approaching this correctly (if any of you are mechanics) I want to learn mechanical repair, rebuilds, troubleshooting etc. I'm not really into auto body, but if the opportunity presents itself I'll learn whatever I can. I guess I'm just going to walk in and ask for anything they can give me. Should I ask pep boys too? I'm by NO means super advanced (or even advanced), but I'm very eager, and a quick learner. I'm just wondering if a mechanic would be willing to take me 'under his wing' so to speak. I won't get in their way, and I'll sweep the floors if it means learning anything about cars. I don't have any technical 'degree' or certification. I'm not sure if that means I'm barking up the wrong tree. help me out! thanks! Jordan
