don't worry

Hey OP don't listen to the haters... my engine builder brought his 2012 M6 straight to his shop from the dealer and put on the dyno LOL. like 10 miles.. June and it was 497 RWHP on 3rd pull i think.

Like he says, do you break in your race motor with 2 weeks part throttle? Hell no. Nuf said

Been building motors for over 38 years and it is even more critical now with these motors coming pre-filled with full syn oil.


Yep! i havent been around in the performance world or automotive profession nearly that long but im around guys like you that have built and raced cars before i was born. my info and decision are not based on my own whim of a "good idea".
