Those that push their cars fairly hard right away seem to be coming up with higher dyno numbers than those who follow the factory-recommended break-in procedure. This seems to confirm what the guy in this link says:

http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm

I'm going to follow his procedure to the letter soon as I get my car. It will be interesting to do that and dyno it afterwards to see what my numbers are. If he's correct and the evidence sure leans that way, I'll be above the average of 357 rwhp that those who follow the factory break-in seem to be getting. He says his method should give a 2-10% increase above the results the factory break-in schedule produces. That would mean I should get anywhere from 364-392 rwhp when I dyno my car. I'll find out soon enough; if there aren't any delays my car should arrive sometime next week.

lol....I'm glad it's worked out for me too! I saw Stainless ragging on my car and about died... Then, we took it out on a 2,000 mile drive. Yeah...there was some flooring and all. But, I would put MONEY on it that the LS3 is getting better as it breaks in.

Tag, i agree with you 100%. Most engines produce more HPs post break-in.....

I guess if you think about it this theory could be possible. I mean in our drag cars that we have we build an engine its installed on the bench, we warm it up to operating temperature and make full power dyno pulls with them until we get them tuned for there peak performance. Then the motor is installed and run hard every pass down the quarter mile. Not to mention Nascar does the same thing essentially. There is no so called break in time. And performance is great.

So on the street break in you push it hard in 2nd 3rd and 4th for the first 200 miles and then change the oil. Is that what he's saying or is there more to it. Talking about the oil. Does the camaro come with synthetic? And if so he is saying you need to change it before the break in? Any help would be appreciated!

dont need to change it till 5000 miles. im positive of it and yes its synthetic, says mobil 1 on oil cap so be prepated for 100$ oil change. if you change it before 5000 miles u are wasting your money because its pointless

Well, when I first get my Camaro 1SS,...the first day, I'm gonna PUSH THAT ****h. The method I use is what usually gets me the most results. In the beginning when you first get a car, I think it's important that you quickly condition it for future use. And how do I do that? Run the hell out of it. I'm in New Orleans, so cops pop up here and there, but oddly enough, I've never been given a speeding ticket in all my years of driving; and ignorant as it sounds, I speed EVERYDAY, I'm never doing 70.

When I first get the car, Im going to cruise out very far as my warm up like around 12 or 1 at night,(empty roads here), after that I'm gonna push it to the max all the way home. Cops here typically race older model camaros, and 9 times out of 10, they always lose with the camaro driver getting away. I mean going 140+Mph late at night with no one on the road, even if I see a cop up ahead sitting on the side of the road, going that fast,....I'd be foolish to stop anyway. Either way, I slow down going 140mph, he's gonna stop me and ticket or worst......arrest, lol. I think if I was going 140+mph, and a cop was sitting on the side of the road with his car off, ....as most do here until someone passes,...going that fast passing them, they wouldn't have enough time to catch me. I've even outran them going 110mph in my 4runner only because I had a head-start and they were sitting on the side of the road with they're car off.

Don't worry once I get my car, I'll keep everyone posted on the results after working it out.
