Finally picked up the car

I finally got my car back after a long two weeks. I can't wait till I hit the 500 mile break in period so I can take it to get tuned so I don't have to keep it from stalling every time I stop. I decided on Tampa Tuning after hearing so many great reviews. Ill post a video in a bit

What performance mod(s) did you do that require a 500 mile break-in but yet need a tune so it won't stall? Not following?

You should get it tune right away even if you have a base tune that gets you close ls motors are roller you dont need a breakin period and if you swapped rings you need to run it hard to seat the rings

Why the rocker ratio and what TSP cam?

And why a 500 Breakin period?

Why run it hard to seat the rings? Your supposed to do it the way your builder requests you to do so.
It wasn't the way I broke in my stroker that's for sure.

Should I worry about it or just run it hard?
