    Brandon, just curious, I am wondering, what your opinion is on the difficulty scale, (shop hours) which model is easier to R & R the engine, 512tr vs testarossa. one from the top, the other out the bottom.

    What’s the plan for the old intake plenums? I’ll take them off the owners hands.

    I have never needed to take a car apart this far unless there were a ton of issues that needed to be addressed. Maybe this car needed it or maybe not..I don't know. But this amount of disassembly seems on the excessive side. Just my opinion.. Maybe I'm doing it wrong. Correct if wrong, I'm open to be told to shut up..

    I think every 25 years the motors are just leaking everywhere and all the rubber is dry rotted. Allot of guys get tired of constant issues with the car and just want something they count on. With this specific customer we always go the extra mile to make the cars perfect to show our appreciation for all the work he gives us.

    I like just dropping engines complete with the subframe. The 512 fuel system and harness make it easier to service once your past removing the motor.

    To me the 512 is easier
    Just yank the motor
    No sub frame issues

    Yes and no
    Input over 110k on a 512 motor I just had to replace the front main seal and the cam seals on the motor
    Kit the water pump
    That was it
    If you drive them they don’t leak!
