I appraciate the responce, but maybe you misunderstood my question, I'm not talking about the vq35hr vs the vq35de, I'm talking about how to spot the differences in the 2003-2005 (06 maybe) vq's, pre rev-up, motors.Citrus wrote:You can spot the difference between a VQ35DE and the VQ35DE Revup by the front timing cover. The Rev Up has variable cam timing on the exhaust and intake, whereas the non-rev has variable cam timing on the intake only.
Sure they can tell me what it came out of, but it doesn't mean they are telling the truth. If u have no way to identify, then you will never know for sure.Citrus wrote:If the person selling the engine can't honestly tell you what vehicle it came out of... I would find a different seller.

I was trying to warn you against buying a RevUp. They had oil consumption issues from the factory and can typically be had for dirt cheap. Lots of folks buy a RevUp not knowing they can't transplant it into their '03-'05 without swapping all the electronics/wiring.
