Lots of cylinder pressure

Heavy load

You have a small window to seat the rings before they glaze and never seat. I load it up on the first start when it reaches op temp
Mmmmm... not sure if I want to follow your advice on breaking in an engine given this EPIC thread

^Funny thread

Im not all that sure. One thing i know is that when i look at how far Mechanical and Automotive technology has come why has the "Engine Breakin" stayed the same. We use a larger variety of different materials and oils now... so should it not have changed? It is up to you to drive the engine how you want.

yes agree with varying RPM for brake in ...
in third world country with so many 1000cc 3 cylinder car you will notice it more
the top speed of each car is different

if you beat up from the beginning it becomes faster better car
if you baby the car, the car becomes sluggish, poor top end
