    Just like the Chevy LS1, the Nissan VQ engine is a cheap, reliable way to make a bunch of power. This engine is also extremely versatile, which is why it’s found in a bunch of different Nissan models. It’s one of the reasons we bought two identical 350zs a while ago. You can tune ‘em, hoon ‘em, and boom them - and nothing matters, such is life. Now there are various VQ models but we're gonna focus on the VQ35HR, or “High Rev” cuz it’s the creme de la creme of VQs. This updated version of the VQ35DE is almost completely redesigned, with 80% of the internals being strengthened and reconfigured to handle a higher rev range. Other iconic engines like the 2JZ or RB26 might be able to handle more power and more compression, but the VQ35HR holds a little baby secret: it’s lighter than all of them. It's time for some B2B Engineering on the Nissan VQ.

Ow.......come on. Torsional is twist not flex. 2 pistons don't fire at the same time. Piston speed is slowest near top and bottom of the stroke. How slow depends on rod and stroke length. Asymmetrical crank circle?

Ikr!? I feel like they could have done better explaining how the crank and pistons work in a 4 stroke. All engines with an even number of pistons have paired pistons (buddy pistons), but they're at different stages of the firing order (one firing, one on intake or exhaust and compression.) The pistons don't move much at tdc and bdc, they're dead for a few degrees because the crank is moving in a predominantly horizontal arc. Until another piston spins the crank into a more vertical section of it's travel arc the pistons don't really move a lot

I love the VQ in my 08 Maxima 3.5SE. It’s smooth. Powerful. Reliable. And mine DOESNT BURN OIL. Yes, it is attached to the CVT, but it’s attached to the GOOD one with the steel band/chain. I’ve seen these specific engine/trans models break 250K miles. And I only paid $1100 for mine. Fucking steal. Plus, ignoring the rust lol.... it’s a damn good looking car.

God... you just got so much wrong with that secondary engine imbalance description. Good illustrations but damn, that was the worst description of secondary imbalance I've ever heard. But no hate, it is complex stuff. I know your heart is in the right place. First, you are right about how counterweights make side to side motion for the engine. But those are unrelated to secondary imbalance. Secondary forces go back and forth twice as often as primary forces. That's why balance shafts are geared to spin twice the speed of the crank. The piston does go faster at the top of the cylinder, and that is the cause of secondary imbalance in something like an inline 4. But the better way to think about it is that the piston spends more time below the halfway point in its stroke than it does above it. Since the engine is in primary balance, the piston has another piston that goes up and down opposite of it. But since the piston is moving down more of the time than it's opposite piston is moving up, The primary balance of the pistons is imperfect. It's not a perfect sine wave, so they don't cancel out, there are remaining vibrations because there's more under the curve than over it. Inline sixes have a method of primary balance that creates no secondary imbalance from the pistons.

Oh dear God. I'm bailing. The pistons do not fire together like that in an inline six. FFS this is ridiculous. When the piston fires is irrelevant. It doesn't fire every time it comes up unless it's a 2 stroke engine. The cylinders fire in the order 153624. That jumps back and forth across the engine, not firing at the same time. "you should start a school". The actual fuck? You're just lying to people who don't know any better. This stuff is easy to learn from Wikipedia, you could have just read the Wikipedia page in monotone and made a better video. I'm sorry. I'm out. This is hurting me to watch. If you ask me, you have a journalistic duty to report on how flawed the descriptions are here.

Wait, I’m a mechanic and that whole thing with the piston moving faster on the top 90° rotation only makes no sense. Yeah, the piston move linearly faster in an arc of rotation, but the point which it moves faster linearly in the [relative] vertical direction will be in the middle stroke area, such as between 30° and 150°. The piston rod-piston mechanism, when connected to a flywheel (for easier visualization. It works the exact same way for a crankshaft because the crankshaft doesn’t move in an elliptical motion), causes the piston to move downwards and upwards slower as it approaches and leaves the 0° and 180° positions, because the piston rod it not pushing the piston upwards or downwards as much and instead the rod in turning horizontally as it goes around the flywheel. Then, when the rod reaches 180° rotation/top dead center, the rod now will gradually move less horizontally and move vertically as the arc of rotation approaches 270° where it maxes out in vertical speed. The only scenario where the video is at least kind of correct is if the crankshaft spot that the piston rod connects to is rotating off center to the center of rotation of a normal crankshaft, which has never been done and is extremely complicated if attempted.

IF you want cheap, powerful, and reliable you get an old US V8 or big-inch I6. I can squeeze 500HP out of a 350 V8 for less money than just the purchase price of a bone stock VQ. Also the V8 sounds better and will last longer. A LOT longer. Like seriously, smallblock chevies have been known to go nearly 100k miles on a spun rod bearing.
