Default Recommend a good Tri-state mechanic?

Not for a particular Subie, M/V in question is my daily driver 05 Sentra. Engine died on me while coasting in neutral at 30mph with the service engine soon light popping up. Managed to park it, would crank but wouldn't turn over, waited 10 mins and started up fine. Connected my OBDII reader and got p0335, crankshaft position sensor. Cleared the code and checked to see if it would act up, ran fine for a month. Died again while on the Verrazano bridge. Managed to park it between 2 toll booths, waited ten minutes, started up. Managed to get it to the dealer, but not without the engine dying 2 more times enroute. During one event the engine started sputtering w/the tach shooting up to 2k on its own with the car not going anywhere before dying. Dealer reflashed the ecu for free as there was a recall on the crank position sensor for the car, cleared the code and I drove it home. A week later I replaced the cam and crankshaft position sensors. Three weeks after that the car died again, this time throwing a p2135 code, throttle body sensor. At this time I'm thinking its a fried ecu or frayed wiring somewhere, after that I'm at a loss and am gunna have to bring it to someone. Suggestions!?

One of our good friends RIP SpecV Mikey, had a SpecV and his ECU had similar issues before it was diagnosed as a bad ECU eventually. Hope that helps. Try Car-Part.com for a cheap ECU?

Leaning towards that, checked for damaged wires earlier and didn't find any. Gunna do more work to pinpoint if it really is the ecu, thanks for the site, good prices there.
