Replacement Engine in my 2003 C4 Cab

Recommended Posts

Well, I have my new engine - boy, does it purr. It doesn't purr as nicely as the $23k did in my bank account but I am somewhat satisfied nonetheless (Airbag and cab top issues were fixed same time, hence the additional costs). I can say one thing, I haven't driven it with mean intentions yet but right off the bat I should NEVER have bought the car I did - just a different feel from start up. Fat lot of good the Porsche Inspection did when I was buying, worthless without a cylinder inspection, etc. I live and, seemingly, never learn.

Gonna be a good July 4 weekend, with the top down. I'm baaaaaaaack.

Was told the engine should come broken in, but I am going to drive it carefully, try to not go over 3k or 3.5k revs for first 1,000 miles or so and will get it serviced at 1k as well.

I believe they ran it for the 20 mins routine, etc and told me to vary the revs for the first few drives (tough on the highway, but did it by shifting up and down). Haven't pushed it past 3.5K revs yet, will take it in for additional oil change at 1,000 miles.

I read that overhauled or new engines should be kept at or below 4,000 RPM for 2,000 miles. Just getting ready for my turn to fork the big bucks in a new engine (80,500 miles !)

Motor swap at 85,000 miles... sorry to hear that. Can you request an engine with a 13mm IMS bearing center nut?
