Question Best Subaru engine builder in the world?!?!

I recently came across this hot guy on Youtube.
He only builds Subaru engines for international customers and racing teams.

His videos are awesome and he works very perfect. Have not seen a better one yet. Does anyone know him?
his channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCji...BZQUolXSSKczjA

Been watching him from the very start. Id take a 100,000+ mile engine rebuilt by him over any 0 mile brand new IAG closed deck rip off non sense any day of the week.

I will raise you the guys at Larry's Machine in CT, of course there are tons of amazing builders all over the world who never get mentioned. They don't all build engines that go in world record cars, some of their work goes to every day people who just drive the snot out of them. I do like his apparently well organized shop, wish I had that kind of space for just my car hobby things.

I wonder how his engines hold up if you use more than 10% throttle in 6th gear. . . . . .

Clean shop, nicely machined parts. Good for getting your engine/Subaru rocks off. That's about it though.

A few of his assembly methods are pretty cringeworthy. Some basic "You should not do that" points in the videos that I would expect an experienced engine builder to know better. The most obvious one being when he torques parts in a way that puts them in bending very obviously & unnecessarily. Makes me think he hasn't really been doing this for long. I'd like to have some of those parts, but I don't want him putting my engine together.

Anyone can be a decent "engine builder" with stack of good quality components and the patience to assemble them correctly.

I can open up a Home Chef box, follow the directions, and end up with a pretty awesome dinner. I don't cheer that I'm an amazing chef afterward though.

Is everyone in Germany working on nice modern engines and this is the one guy to go to for silly old EJ Subaru engines?

PS I am jealous of the lean/organized shop area.

You must have missed this video


he knows exactly how to torque bolts and shows the difference between ARP paste, oil, and completely dry and what insane amount of torque is needed on dry bolts to create the proper stretch that ARP paste provides. You dont seem like you know what you're talking about. Your "dinner in a box" analogy is cute but doesnt apply. No restaurant is going to ask you to come make their dinners with your little meal in a box where as all his blue printing isnt a lego set, its all done on the fly from scratch, for PRO race teams. His latest was an italy hill climb car. maybe you need to watch more than one second of one video before you start commenting??

No, I did not miss that video.

In fact, you don't even actually have to watch the video. Just from the still image you can see he has the connecting rod clamped on the I beam section, so torquing puts strain into that part of the rod. Sure it might not result in damage to the rod, but it could. If you're assembling "race" engines for paying customers, then you shouldn't do stuff like that.

An even more ridiculous point was when he torqued all rods onto the crank with it standing straight up clamped just on a bolt into the snout of the crank. Actually made me cringe. Again it might not hurt, but its bending parts that aren't supposed to be bent when it could easily be done without bending.

I like his videos. I'm not over here clicking the 'thumbs down' or anything, but don't try to act like he is doing something amazing other than showing off his nice shop and fancy machined subaru parts.

I think 'from scratch' means pulling ingredients from a generic pile and measuring based on feel and experience. The results can vary quite a lot based on the chef or even different iterations from the same chef.

Engine assembly isn't 'from scratch'. You have a pile of specific off-the-shelf parts that are designed to go together 1 way and a list of tight tolerances that must be met for it to work properly. You may have to make adjustements to get the tolerances correct, but that doesn't make it 'from scratch'.

'Blueprinting' is simply recording dimensions to ensure all the tolerances are where they're supposed to be. Anyone can and should do that while assembling an engine.

Again, I'm not hating on the videos, but when you title the thread "best subaru engine builder in the world" I'm going to point of the issues.

Guys, we should vote Vica best engine builder in the world. All his speculation about bending 4304 connecting rods trumps physics. Not to mention the clamping of the rod was for demonstration purposes ***ON A USED ROD*** as he was going thru torquing and measuring stretch using 3 different methods.

here is tomei, a legendary engine building company, with what should still be the record for the fastest time attack subaru ever (i havent checked recently) doing the same exact thing as the "cringe worthy kid from germany" at the 4 minute mark.


Vica should open up his own shop since he clearly knows more than tomei and a kid building 800hp engines for professional race teams in competition use.

EDIT: here is where facts and science come into play instead of opinion and speculation. Manley rods are made from 4340 forgings, when searching how strong 4340 is i came across this tid bit from michigan university "For example, a 1/8” diameter 4340 steel wire can hold a small car." Citing the source here https://www.mtu.edu/materials/k12/experiments/tensile/ where they test carbon fiber , kevlar and fiberglass.

Here are more scientific facts on 4340: "Generally supplied hardened and tempered in the tensile range of 930 - 1080 Mpa (condition U) - (Rc 28 - 36)..
Characterised by high strength and toughness" http://www.interlloy.com.au/our-prod...tensile-steel/

So if you think some kid putting a relatively small amount of torque on a 4340 solid heat treated rod is stronger than ***A CAR HANGING from thin 4340 wire*** then please step away from the internet

haha easy now. You obviously have a superior knowledge of the youtube engine porns.

Tomei had the crank clamped on the opposite end in a fixture that supported it much better.

Calm your angry keyboard jockey self.

Or I've made my points and you just want this thread to be about how ground-breakingly-awesome this guy's engines are and insult anyone who would suggest otherwise. I'll leave you to it.

For those that went to college, Did any professor ever allow you to write a paper, stating something, without providing and citing the sources for that information?

So people are "correct" when they say "i can bend a 4340 rod with my bare hands" with no proof and if someone says thats impossible because its tensile strength is 1080 mpa which is well over 108000 psi and here is my scientific source for coming to the conclusion then they are "wrong" because they went above and beyond to provide facts for their reasoning.

:facepalm: right back at ya
