Nissan VR38 Build, episode 1
Got the motor on the engine stand so work can begin. In this clip, I go
over some of the work done by Nissan on the intake system. The performance
data I quote and graphs I display are from a Nissan paper published to SAE
- 2009-01-1067 "The New High Performance V6 Gasoline turbocharged Engine from NISSAN" authored by Naoki
Nakada, designer of the VR38.

NWP Engineering 92 Maxima 3.5L Engine Swap Initial Start Up - Part 1 of 2
Part 1 of 2
The world's fastest NA 3rd gen Maxima now becomes the the world's first
VQ35DE Swap in a 3rd gen Maxima (89-94) with FULL ECU wiring!
This is the very first time the engine was turned over after a 6 month
engine build up. No rattling or ticking was heard at any point of the
initial startup. Permatex Ultra Slick Engine assembly lube was used and
timing chain tensioners were snug during installation.
A few seconds after the engine fired up, a camshaft break in procedure was
done by holding the engine at 1800rpm for at least 10-15 minutes. The
battery charger was not putting out enough power to run the engine, so it
stalled after the engine ran for about 13 minutes, which is good enough.
The alternator was hooked up later. The engine also is running with open
headers since custom Ypipe will need to be made.

1995-2001 Nissan Maxima: Spark plug replacement
How to remove and replace the spark plugs/coil packs on a 4th/5th gen
This is an updated video to replace the one from a few years ago that was
completely washed out and didn't really cover the subject as well as I
would have liked.
Tools required are a 8mm socket (or phillips head screwdriver), 5/8" plug
socket, extensions, 4mm allen key/bit socket for the front coil cover
bolts, and a 12mm socket for the EVAP CPVCV (if so equipped).
