    The biggest concern in the long run would be the direct injection and potential gunk build up on the intake valves. Your best bet to avoid this is to run 98 and quality oil.

    In my opinion the 62 is a rock solid platform.

    Using supercars as a model isn't reliable...they have to rebuild them every race...bigger that.

    The super cars need a engine that can take punishment and the 5.6 can. It's actually over engineered as almost every other nissan petrol engine before it.

    As far as I'm concerned nissan knows how to do 2 things well:

    1) build excellent petrol engines. E.g. ca18, sr20 det, rb25 det, rb26det, vk56vd etc
    2) build a tough drivetrain in their 4wds and sports cars.

    Our friends in the middle East have been dune bashing y62s for almost 10 years and they're so reliable that the police and military have stuck with nissan as a result. They also out sell lc200 3-1 and are roughly the same price

    Yeah, Nissan Petrol Engines have almost always been world class leaders... Diesels not quite as much they are either awesome or dogshit... curious isn't it.

    As well as those above... the Datto 1600 engine back in the day powered prob 1/2 the race/rally cars on the planet, the RB30 Skyline/Commodore engine was a belter (even the Cabbies couldn't kill that one) and then the crazy horses they get out of an essentially stock 4.8 litre six.

    The VK series engine is well over 15 years old now and the 5.6 version is almost 10 years old and the pick of the litter, only engineering issue I have heard of is the premature timing chain wear issue on the earlier ones.
    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    ]The RB 25 always was popular with the Nismo crew back in the 90s...oil and gas compression combustion engine relay need some looking at though...less replacement parts and built stronger? Why all the perishable items...apposed piston engines can ignite gasses...but are big and weighty...always wonder what happened to the research on diesels...it just stopped all of a sudden at its worst design but began at with a better one...
    $$$$$$secrets maybe
