  • Awesome video, definitely one of the most informative and entertaining videos I've seen for engine building I just did my first full engine rebuild, down to the crank on a SOHC EJ25 this past fall. I like seeing the comparison of steps to take to get to the block. Going to the extent of measuring and talking about machined surfaces is what I appreciate most about this video. There is a lot to rebuilds, not to mention the cost, but if you commit to it and do it right, it definitely pays for itself

  • Wouldn't it be easier to pull out the engine without the transmission still attached? Or are some of the bolts that hold them together inaccessible while the assembly is in the car?
