    So like just to get my bearings right cuz I dunno a ton about this stuff and am firmly "noob"... Would experts consider Mr. Zach dude an "ok" mechanic, "very good" mechanic, "expert", or "savant"?

    Awesome video, definitely one of the most informative and entertaining videos I've seen for engine building I just did my first full engine rebuild, down to the crank on a SOHC EJ25 this past fall. I like seeing the comparison of steps to take to get to the block. Going to the extent of measuring and talking about machined surfaces is what I appreciate most about this video. There is a lot to rebuilds, not to mention the cost, but if you commit to it and do it right, it definitely pays for itself

    Wouldn't it be easier to pull out the engine without the transmission still attached? Or are some of the bolts that hold them together inaccessible while the assembly is in the car?

    When you put an upgraded oil pump it increases pressure but it also increases flow hence high volume oil pump. They can flow so much oil that it can contribute to it drying out the sump. You should really look into getting an enlarged oil sump such as the rips racing oil pan extension
