    The Papadakis Racing team began drifting in 2004 and is the most winning team in Formula Drift history, earning the 2015 title with driver Fredric Aasbo, as well as back­to­ back championship titles with driver Tanner Foust in 2007 and 2008. The Rockstar Energy Drink / Nexen Tire Toyota Corolla Hatchback is the latest competition build from the Hawthorne, California, based team.

    Team owner Stephan Papadakis is a legend of sport­ compact racing who began building his reputation in the 1990s with the first front-wheel ­drive, tube­-chassis drag car in the U.S. The team earned multiple records and championships in the discipline, turning in elapsed times and trap speeds previously thought unattainable in front­-drive drag cars. Papadakis' successes in front­-wheel drive were matched by his efforts in rear­-wheel drive when he campaigned a Honda Civic that became just the fifth car to join the NHRA's Sport Compact 200 MPH club

    Pra mim este jovem e o engenheiro mecânico fazer uma montagem de um motor deste nível não e pra qualquer mecânico. Principalmente aqui no Brasil.. que só tem amador. Parabéns excelente trabalho.

    Watching this took me back to when I built my last engine for my MK1 escort. Great video but I think the head you put on around 7.44 didn't have any valves fitted. If you struggled getting compression up be worth looking at how many valves are left over lol!

    Can you do the 1JZ as well? Or is this tutorial for the 2JZ the same torque specs and assembly for the 1JZ the exact same?

    MSL is the best head gasket you can get. Be sure you know the right thickness you need after machining. It does matter.
