It was a Mazworx engine that Mark drag raced. He crack the block like I stated. That is why there is a billet VQ35DE block out there. It is between 9 and 10k. So, you guys are not doing anything new. The true answers are out there. You just have to search for them. That is how I know what I do. Everything is in my tread.

If you have the money and time to waste then fine.
Just get it proffesionaly done I would think rather than risking it.

Yeah seriously, "30-35psi" & "we're just having to do this ourselves and see what fails".

True to a point... but most of those suggesting a professional build have been down that road. We've built engines, trans & rear ends ourselves, learned the expensive mistakes and now choose to use a professional to build our cars. Yes, we could get engines & trans out of a salvage yards, old Detroit muscle was easy to find back in the 70s, now, not so much. Today's cars are sometimes harder to find, when they get crunched, there's not as much sheet metal around the engine and more things get broken.

If someone was building an engine today, my advice would be to have a professional do it, unless you are doing a basic rebuild of an engine that has 200k on it. You still have to have the block tanked, line-bored, decked and the heads gone through. The crank has to be matched to the block and balanced. Not everyone has the tools to assemble an engine properly, ring compressors and good torque wrenches aren't cheap, and why buy them for a 'first-time build'?

Bottomline, your friends' choice. My second piece of advice.... curate the YouTube videos... not everyone has their chit in one bag....

Sounds like he might be pulling a Rusty. I hope he is not married or has kids. He may be shown the door. LMAO!!!! Reality is he is short on money to do a proper build. I get it. I have done it myself way too many times. This is the first build I have let someone else do. Why, because I didn't have too. You just showed your true colors with that last statement.

Hope not. I lost count on the number of motors I built and blown up. I really don't want to think about it.

So according to your own posts, you're actually not a car enthusiast?
