Invoice for Gasket Repair

Thought I'd post this FYI.
My car went into limp mode and displayed a CEL without warning. I drove it to the dealership and got a diagnosis and an estimate in the $3200 - $3900 range. I did some research and contacted a friend who owns a local shop and he was game for the repair.



Here is a picture that he took of the damaged gasket:

Reading about how a 370Z blew the motor in spectacular fashion and the culprit was the oil galley gasket under the FRONT timing cover, not the rear. I've asked for clarification as it seems it's the same part. But if not...both could be potentially weak points, FYI.
Help please, I blew my motor and need to plan the rebuild - Page 5 - Nissan 370Z Forum

EPS Tuning makes a replacement gasket set which I'm sure is designed to be more durable than OEM/OEM redesign but it says rear. So the OP on the 370z forum may have it backwards.

Small world! John was my mechanic when I lived in the Capital District. Glad to see he's still doing great work.

Here's a couple videos on youtube of a DIY job, if this ever happens to mine, at least my harmonic balancer bolt isn't subjected to the devil of the rust belt
