I'll drive it like the 3000GTVR4 I still have as a DD; sanely. Twenty years later it still runs very strong especially with turbo upgrades and better breathing over stock, and every teenager serving food at McD's always comments on the lack of dents dings, and the overall pristine condition.

When you drive it like you stole it the wear and tear will show as the years wear on, as will an owner who baby's a car. Its the comments that come to you after years of owning where folks cant believe you have a car which looks new. The neat thing is you end up not having to replace it due to not wearing the car out.

I'm getting an Inferno Orange "13 next week, and while I'll carefully break it in properly; I do intend to eventually send it to KDI and build it to 750 to 850 RWHP...but only after properly breaking it in; and enjoying the warranty.
Uhhhh, the engineers designed this thing to be driven hard on the track, not to milk around town.

Sweet numbers. It's obviously your car so drive it how you want to and I'll do the same.

[QUOTE=2010 SSRS;5781280]best break in out there [/QUOTE
I broke mine in like I'm going to drive it. One of the most important things we want to do with these performance engines, is to properly Seat the rings. I took my advice from engine builders, I ran it pretty hard and did some hard up shifts and some hard downshifts and ran it through 2 full heat cycles. Never keeping it at the same RPM for long. That being done I have some properly seated rings. The rest of the drivetrain I used common sense. You only get one shot to seat the rings. It was very important for me to do this properly, knowing I was going to put more horsepower to the rear wheels later. Now it has 704 rwp and I don't have a warranty anyway. In my own opinion properly seated rings came first. Obviously, GM engineers know more about the total car than we do. I have a feeling that suggested break in, has more to do with the total drivetrain package. I personally, didn't want to car that uses oil. Superchargers are not a big fan of oil vapor.

Me too! Dude, your car is going to be fine. Today's engine clearances are so close that these things are actually broken in after two heat cycles. By the way, pretty decent numbers.

Your ZL1 dyno run finished so quickly!
Watch my SS for contrast in run time
The extra 146 HP makes a difference!

Best way to seat the rings is hard in the first 3-500 miles. After 500 miles odds are the cylinders have formed a hard glaze and the seating window is gone. Babying these for 1500 miles pretty much assures you will have oil consumption issues for life. The owners manual is NOT written by the engineers that know but marketing, legal, and accounting.

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

A friend of mine bought a new Honda Accord in 1993 and drove it like a bat out of hell on the way home (Oregon country roads, about 40 miles).

To date the car has over 500,000 - yes, five hundred thousand - miles on the engine and it is still going.

Good maintenance is key.

OP - Nice stock numbers. Glad you drive your car like you want to.

524 RWHP is very stout.

But: I ain't gonna rev mine up that high until 1500 mile break in.
I'm just saying...

Thanks guys.

I was a little surprised how much it put down. I know every dyno is different but I also know that dynocom themselves came down and set the calibrations to ensure accuracy. It's also been dead on or a few ponies off a couple other dyno's nearby. So I really feel like its a reliable number.

I think for now once I recuperate... I'll do LT's with high flow cats and a CAI.

Any suggestions on the CAI?

Also... I have been looking to see a video clip of a zl1 with LT's to get an idea of the sound.

Well a dealership I went to to test drive a camaro the salesperson insisted he drove to this secluded industrial park where I could drive I am almost positive that he took it over 4k RPM's on the way to the industrial park where he insisted I practically go for record 1/4 mile times or something lol so for a lot of you break-in time fanatics i hope you ordered your Camaro or bought the one in the back of the lot with plastic on the seats with 2 miles logged etc... mine was supposed to have a few unwanted dealer installed options i told them to not do and give it to me that much cheaper.

There are many places in Texas. I took my car to a place near Sugarland, TX. Like 10 min from downtown Houston. If you come anywhere near Houston you'll find a lot of shops with dynos. I can see about getting you a deal. The guys are my friends and I worked there for 2 years.

PM me if your interested.

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
