Different break-in process

Recommended Posts

Hey Don, This is an interesting article but I think it is also accademic. My previous car an Audi A6 quattro's manual said words to the effect that you should drive off immediately the engine has been started. Don't wait for it to warm up. It also said that you should not break the engine in but should have the car's first service at 1000 miles....I guess that's an oil change. This more or less follows these guidelines. However, This article is contrary to what Porsche suggest for their cars.....well at least the 996.

In summary, this article says: when you get your new car you shoud break it in hard.

Change the oil after 20 miles and don't use synthetic. From thence on you should let the car

warm up to operating temperature before driving.

This sounds good but I can't help feel that if PAG say do it differently, we should follow ther guidelines. After all, PAG would have thouroughly tested and benchmarked their engine design in laboratory conditions many times over and they will know the best way to break in and run their engines based on

exprimental results.

Also, according to this article, Fuel injection tuning and cam timing concepts are myths as far as performance tuning goes. I am no technical expert but I find this hard to believe.

It seems to me that you could also read this as: drive the **** out your new car and use crappy oils. If you do this it will keep us service engineers in employement :clapping:

Maybe I should hsut up cos I don't know what I am talking about: ;)

Interesting reading though.
