What a cool video! I love rebuilding engines. The last one I tackled was a couple of years ago- I did a BP 1.8L inline 4 from a Mazda Miata. Now I know that the Miata has the "hairdresser's car" reputation, but I rarely encounter an engine that is so overbuilt, and containing so many nods to high performance mods- from the oil pan windage tray, to the oil shooters that aim at the bottoms of the pistons, thick block casting, four-bolt mains, etc.. No wonder companies like Flyin' Miata build forced induction kits (turbocharging and supercharging) that routinely deliver 400+HP to the crank.

Now, I find myself wanting to visit the local U-Pull-It, yank a small-block V8- don't really care which- and rebuild it. I just enjoy the time spent making something old and worn out, new again.
