you realize this is only for a motor you built that has zero run-time right? By the time you get your new car it will have already been run.

Literally every engine has been run before it's been delivered. Run and broke-in are 2 very different things as far as a mechanical approach.

buy it and



i also used motoman break in. 35K miles of smiles and going strong. Cobb OTS Stage 2 since 16K and would recommend this to others.

as for warm up, dont let it idle in the driveway, drive it. just keep it below 3k or so and out of boost until up to temp. idle is bad, mmkay.
