Yep that’s the normJust reading over my paperwork from the dealer about the short block replacement, and found some comments on here that they never mentioned to me. The notes on here say they found scoring on #7 and #5 cylinder in my original motor.
At one point wasn’t Nissan/Datsun offering a complete restoration at the factory. If they still are you could find decent one and do that lol. I can only imagine how much that costs alone in shipping it back to JapanGreat looking car, I’d buy one if I could find a clean one, most are well worn now.
They were but not on 240s and they did that in 1999. They stopped that same year. Btw, mine is a 280zx and I did the restorationAt one point wasn’t Nissan/Datsun offering a complete restoration at the factory. If they still are you could find decent one and do that lol.

Listen Clint. I'm not complaining. I make statements about valid things that have happened to my Titan.Sadly it appears all you do here is complain about everything regarding your truck. Why not just put it up for sale and get out of the lease.
As for trophies I have a couple of dozen, if not more. Seriously, 10,000 miles on a car shows wear, in 8 years? If I put only 500 in a whole season on the car it gets fresh synthetic before being put away for the winter. It gets changed every 6 months regardless of mileage.
I alluded to something in the first post, I had a sick 7 year old 15 years ago, it was bad but now at 22 she’s doing great and like I said nothing else really matters, as long as you’re healthy every thing else can be dealt with. Vehicles are just things.
Is there a link to this somehwere? Mine bugles like an elk when filling up at the gas station.(per the fuel up whistle TSB) so another trip back in the near future.
I found and posted the TSB document in the whistling thread. Direct link to my post here: https://www.titantalk.com/threads/whistle-while-fueling-up-2017-sv.405361/post-8072145Is there a link to this somehwere? Mine bugles like an elk when filling up at the gas station.
I told the dealer about it while back during an oil change visit and got the typical response of "that's normal on all new vehicles these days. works as designed"
Ummmm...no its not normal you dumb azz mechanic.
If u decide to keep your truck I would change out the oil at 1k and also follow the new vehicle break in process.. Remember most of your engine is new...I just picked my truck up from the dealer. The driving experience is night/day (for the better), my truck now has almost the same throttle response as the XD loaner I had so that's a plus. Sounds completely different at idle. Just took it for a quick drive around town but will give it a better test drive as soon as I can. Dealership has a new fuel tank on order (per the fuel up whistle TSB) so another trip back in the near future.
The "after care" for the swap is clearly not an official Nissan policy. Some have posted here about being told to come back in for a 1000 mile oil change and such, I specifically asked my dealer and they said "nope, just drive it like normal next oil change in 5000 miles." I may do it sooner just because, but they had absolutely 0 special instructions for me.
One time some lady made a comment I was filling my tank too fast and gas might splash back on me...My 08 has whistled for 11 years. Not the first problem, and nobody has ever asked why it does that. I don't understand the big deal. Y'all scared of what somebody thinks? I could give a rats fanny what somebody thinks... I have 2 words for them.....
That's my plan at this point. My local Chevrolet dealer was offering steals on their 2019 Silverado inventory, but I only wanted one with the 10 speed transmission because the 8 speed seems problematic and those are all already all gone, so it's the Titan for me for at least another year now. Driving her around as much as I can to get her broke in because I have some long trips coming up.If u decide to keep your truck I would change out the oil at 1k and also follow the new vehicle break in process..

If the work they did holds up within a thousand miles or so you should be good for the long haul..
The assembly tolerances on these engines are tight..If the tech took any shortcuts issues will show up quickly....
