what break-in period??

Yeah shoot just ignore Chevrolet, I'm sure you know better than the engineers, after all they just designed it >> what do they know anyway? I dont want to cause any flames but...

Folk thats disobey simple instructions do so at their own peril. It's just amazing, buy a great car then take huge chances. I fully intend to enjoy this car for years.

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.

Dude...you mean you let the Motor run at a constant engine speed for an hour and didn't vary the speed at all and then hammered it?

That's the biggest engine taboo of all.
Good God

Omg. The car gets driven on the street first. It seems to be the thing to do now I guess. Always get off subject and don't pay attention to the OP. everyone's a critic and expert. I digress. My mistake for posting.

It's all good man...It's your Car....you can do what you want with it.

Lots of guys here drive the shit out of their cars,do 6K clutch dumps,dyno it with 100 miles etc.and never blink an eye,and just say it's GM's fault if it breaks etc.

Some people just don't see it that way that's all.

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!

This is a link off my tuner "Mayhem Motorsports" works better than my photobucket.

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.
