Default How Long?

How long does it usually take to do a swap? Say I have the LS1+tranny and everything out of my car and car, I'm not really sure yet but lets say a 280Z and in very good condition, what else would be needed and how long would it take to do the swap? Thanks

Little stuff always pops up that youll end up needing. I did my swap in 4 months over the winter. I didnt work on it everyday though, and when I did it wasnt more than 2-3 hours at a time. More time on the weekends was spent on it but that was about it.

lol.. I'm not the person you want to get an answer from... but... mine took/is taing 1 year & 10 months!

But mine was a bit harder than a 280 swap... I'd say, if you work on it for a decent part of your day, every day... maybe 3 months. The resources are there.. it just depends how handy you are.

Good luck!
