Nissan is the absolute WORST car in the world to work on. They just cram stuff in there, even when it doesn't have to be done that way. Not only that, but they make some stuff intentionally hard. For instance, on the 240SX, the bolts that hold in the steering box point UP!
As for working on cars, most of my experience is with Honda. Hondas are SO simple they might as well call them Fisher Price. Toyota is a little more complicated than Honda, but not too bad. As for the LS1, it's certainly a simple engine. But it would still be nice if there could be dowel pins to take out the guesswork (and/or need for special tools).
