Remanufactured Engine break in procedure?

Recommended Posts

First, let me apologize if this topic has already been covered, I tried multiple searches and came up with zero everytime. I'm in the middle of doing an engine swap and just go my new - remanufactured motor from Sunset Porsche. I'm hoping to get the new motor back into the car within the next 2 weeks. I know that the motor has oil in it already and even some residual anti-freeze from when it was run at the factory. My question is, when first starting the engine is there anything special that I need to do (ie. prime the oil system), secondly, once everything is sorted out, is there an engine break in procedure that should be followed, for how long, etc. When should I change the oil for the first time, etc?

Let the engine run on the starting motor til the oil pressure on the indicator is OK, than you can start the engine like usual.

Engine break in is the same as a new car ( see your manual )

Oil change after 20.000 Km. or every year as usual.

PLEASE PLEASE take some documenting pics of the engine being installed!!! I'd really love to see them!! Heck, if you were anywhere near me, I'd help you install it!

Will do... It's going to be a couple more weeks before I can get it back in (waiting on some parts). After reading some posts recently.. I've deceided to replace the slave cylinder and shifter fork assy while I'm there.
