  1. He should take a old crank balancer bolt, weld it some place out of the way on the vise. Then each time just thread crank onto the bolt and it won’t move all around instead of clamping it in the vise.

  2. Your shop is about to get really busy when more people see these videos this is what I'm looking for from an engine builder. Awesome quality man your doing things the way they are supposed to be done

  3. Quick q: If you buy components (rods, block, head etc) brand new, is it safe to assume they're up to spec and the measurement via micrometer or caliper is unnecessary? Mostly to just double check (plus in this video they're reusing some stuff, like block and hea, so have to make sure the stuff is in tolerance)?

  4. Hi! I have a 2006 Forester 2.0X 158 HP and cannot find the fuel filter. Usually where the filter is in the engine bay, in mine there is the secondary air pump. I cannot find it in the engine bay and as the filter looks it's not in the gas tank either. I have seen exploded drawings about it but can't locate the filter. Can you help me? Thanks!

  5. Das sieht alles sehr gut aus wie du das machst. Bei den ganzen möchte gern schraubern die man hier so sieht ist es wirklich schön Mal jemanden zu sehen der weiß was er macht. Habe schon an der Menschheit gezweifelt. Aber so wie es aussieht gibt es noch welche wie ich die das mit Herz und Leidenschaft machen. Bin zwar bei einer anderen Marke vertreten. Aber wenn ich sehe wie du das machst bekommt man richtig Lust für so einen subi . Bitte mach weiter so und las dich von keinem runter machen. Ich wünschte es gebe mehr von deiner Sorte.
    Alles gute noch.

  6. Please upload a video on how you repair odometers after all the full cycles your engines produce… Also, for all you Americans, "odometers" not "odomiles" metrics people…

  7. Ohhh the attention to details and correct measurements.. I love it..
    Makes my old mechanics heart pump an extra beat..

    How much would it cost to have you overhaul a subaru impreza wrx engine? It's a running engine that just needs that new engine feel..

    Your videos are amazing btw.. 🙂

  8. Delightful meticulous measurements!! Please tell me what does Mahle Motorsport rod bearing win against ACL? And what is the main bearing you use in powerful engines?

  9. @Subi Performance Congrats, Hut ab und alle Achtung!!!
    Auf dass Dir dauerhaft Deine Arbeitseinstellung und Deine Qualitätsstandards erhalten bleiben, das wünsche ich Dir! Deine Kunden werden es Dir danken und wir YT-Zuseher obendrein. Du wertest mit Deinem Können die Marke Subaru noch zusätzlich auf !!! Stay tuned!

  10. Have you ever had a issue with a mahle part? I work at mahle but have never bought any, I can say the strictness of the quality is very good. Those pistons wouldve came from "motor sports" and that part of the plant I work at is whole other world lol it's not about volume it's all about the quality

  11. Hey , fellow engine builder here , just wanted to know what engine assembly lube are you using ? I want to give it a shot ! Love the videos and thanks

  12. … los detalles así definen la diferencia entre un mecánico y un artesano profesional…
    Mis respetos 🙇🏻‍♂️

  13. Enjoyed watching this episode! Love the level of accuracy you take with your builds! We just dropped a Cummins 6 in our ag tractor you may be into checking out Have a great day and keep em coming!

  14. Top Videos! Per Zufall auf deinen Kanal gestoßen. Ne kurze Frage von nem Laien: Warum hast du die Pleuel abgeschliffen? Sind die vom Hersteller nicht genau genug gefertigt? Werd mal n paar weitere Videos von dir schauen. Weiter so!

    Edit: Dass die Kolben-Pleuel Kombination gleich viel wiegen müssen versteh ich ja. Aber sind die Toleranzen so hoch bei den Pleueln?

  15. very cool to watch the process, this is the exact setup I ran in my STi. I'm completely jealous of your arsenal of tools and how clean and organized you and your shop are. Good job, I love these videos

  16. I need a video explaining the how and why everything is done in the video, like how are the halves indicated in, how are the rods balanced blablah, anyone care to recommend something. I'm a machinist by trade but would like to get into engine building one day

  17. Ich kann mich erinnern, dass BMW bei seinen Formel 1-Turbomotoren Standard-Motorblöcke verwendet haben soll, die mindestens 80.000 km Laufleistung hatten, damit sich alle Spannungen im Motorblock gelöst hatten.

    Also ist so ein alter Motorblock wahrscheinlich die bessere Wahl, es wird ja sowieso alles aufgearbeitet.

  18. the con rod bearings didnt look like there was an oil hole in – how are the small end bushings/ piston pin lubricated?

  19. Coole Videos und meiner Ansicht nach die beste Werbung die man machen kann 👍
    Vielleicht erklärst du bei Gelegenheit noch bisschen was dazu und wegen mir auch gern auf deutsch.
    Weiter so ✌️

  20. Does it mean that oil clearance measurement by using plastigage can be omitted and micrometer measurements are good enough?

  21. Ich weiss, dass du sehr beschäftigt bist, aber eine Frage hätte ich an dich, da ich mir überlege einen Outback 2.0 D zuzulegen.
    Was hältst du von diesem Motor?
    Laufleistung 93 tkm
    Bj. 2016
    Wäre für eine Rückinfo sehr dankbar!

  22. I like your job, style, and ability, but your takes and angles, sound, are a little bored…. You take too long time filming same shoot, or doing same thing…. Don't know, just some tips from someone who whatch a lot of channels like your.

  23. God damn this has to be the most scientific engine build ever. Aside from the additional boring done to the cylinders, if all other parts are new, they should be to spec. But then again checking down to the smallest decimal in sure has its benefits

  24. Now this is proper engineering! Loved watching the piston rods being balanced, such attention to detail, I've never seen any other Youtube channel get close to this level.

  25. This is the way i like videos ..straight to the point .
    No bad music, no waste of time. Good job

  26. Bro you are an inspiration to your people you are bringing them out of the dark into the light I cannot help but admire you as many others would

  27. At Pratt & Whitney we also were using black markes on are parts but later we realise that the cabin was afecting the parts at hight tempiture from the carbin

  28. Brah!!!! Addictive to watch AMAZING DETAIL on an engine I never thought much about!!!. I'M SOLD… HOW MUCH FOR AT LEAST 600HP ENGINE BUILT AND SHIPPED TO TEXAS? WOULD LOVE TO surprise a few mustangs and Camaros. Any suggestions on year car to start with, best modifications… YOU HAVE CORRUPTED ME SIR… I LIKE!!!

  29. I watch a lot of videos and this is the first time I have ever seen this type of thing before like why would you do this too brand new parts? Whats the science or methodology of taking the weight off brand new parts?

  30. You left your safety glasses (eyes) on the bench when you went to grind the piston rod. That will cost you a donation of €25 to your favorite charity. Please note that the donation is far cheaper than a white cane and a leader dog. (You may not think so at this moment, but I am your best friend, I truly care about your well being.

  31. i swear youd never find this quality or precision work anywhere in canada 🇨🇦💩🇨🇦💩🇨🇦💩

  32. nice work.. make yourself a set of lead vise jaws ans save those crank snouts from getting scratched up…

  33. I dig your videos! I enjoy seeing your attention to detail. Although, I think you need some more tools!!!!! 🙂

  34. I guess I’ve never seen anyone “weigh and balance rods” is this proprietary to specifically Manley rods? And I’m curious, why all the measurements? Are the internals not made for your specific motor? Or are you doing some super custom application? I’m honestly curious to make my builds better. I’m no master tech or anything.

  35. Would it be possible for you to release the spec sheets? I would to have them for when I'm working on my subarus. They would make the work alot better

  36. What would your recommendation for maximum output of one of these open deck motors (EJ25) if built properly ?

  37. Schönes Video! Man sieht richtig dass Spaß an der Sache hast. Was misst du da bei Min. 18:25 ? Die Dehnung der Schrauben?
