I absolutely hate to do this but this has gone under the cover farrrr too long. Many of you know I've been messing with the 2MZ motor and the 3MZ for a long time now. I actually originally planned all this 2 years ago. I bought close to 1500 dollars worth of parts from Gabe. All the gaskets I'd need, the 3mz block, a trans, supra maf, injectors, walbro fuel pump, and the list honestly just goes on and on. I told him i'm pulling my engine out 2 winters ago. November 2010 my original 1MZ came out and told him to send me all my parts and gaskets so I can assemble my 3mz block with the 2mz I had bought. It shouldn't have taken more then a week or 2. I started waiting 3 weeks for the parts to come in but they were always "in a box at his storage" looking for time or other parts. I couldn't wait any longer since I got a new job and I needed a car to drive and emissions were coming up. I was forced to put the 2mz in because I couldn't wait longer. I kept waiting for him to send me my parts but I never got them. I went about 7 months with the 2mz waiting for the gaskets to come in to do teh swap in fall or the next winter.

A better car came up so i lunged and bought that (my current 02 6spd maxima) and the winter of 2011 that was turbod. now the time has come where my timing cover in my 2mz cracked due to a bolt snapping and my avalon is sitting in the middle of my garage forcing me to now drive my 02 maxima thats boosted and on coilovers through chicago winter when I had an easy swap lined up in the avalon, but no, I'm forced to now drive my maxima, lose garage space, and have my avalon sit for 3 MONTHS now because I STILL DONT HAVE EVERYTHING. All i have is the block, trans, intake mani gaskets, head gaskets, and valve cover gaskets. I ordered 500+ dollars of parts THAT I DONT HAVE. I don't have money to just throw away, I'm 20 years old and working my ass off to go to school and work and play with my cars.

Gabe, it's been 2 years since we originally ordered the parts, and 3 months since i told you my motor is coming out FOR THE SECOND TIME. Where are my parts???

You don't answer my calls, texts, facebook messages or anything. I'm sick of the excuses.

I want my money or my parts.

email, text, fb or pm? I wouldn't mind keeping it public since this seems to be a problem. I've stood by you for 4+ years from when I first started with cars. I've learned a lot and now I'm learning a lot from you as well, almost what not to do rather than to do.

Our records indicate you have received yur entire custom order with the exception of cams seals and headbolts. You told us to try to sell your injectors, maf, and pump because you werent going to use them.

I'm making a list of everything now. Whether you sell them or send them, I dont care. I'd like the money because right now I don't even know if you have them. All I'm going by for those are a few words on a computer screen. If you don't sell them I'll sell them, but I can't just let you hold on to them.

We are in the process of resolving this now. Like I said, I'm making a list of everything as we speak.

I sent an email going over that slightly. I won't be using any fuel mods, so if you can use them in a build or know someone who will buy them they can send me the money since they are paid for. However, if you have nothing lined up I'd feel more comfortable having them in my possession rather than waiting for you to sell them.

Are you in need of them now and are willing to send me $ for them when the chance is possible or just send them to me?

sorry for delay, been wrenching away on the car. we did take care of everything, as i said before, gabe is indeed a great guy, just shipping those random parts took a bit longer then planned, everything else has ALWAYS been perfect! as a matter of fact, i still have more parts coming from him that we just went over yesterday/today.

I'd use the term "running" loosely lmao. 3 out of 6 cylinders don't really count lol.
