Re: engine break in procedure -> your opinion

That is exactly what I've been hearing from several sources for the last 30 years or more. The technique has been described in magazines like Road & Track and Hot Rod, and it's what professional race engine builders have told owners of cars I've crewed on.

Re: engine break in procedure -> your opinion

It is interesting about the first 20 miles being the most important. Most new Jeeps already have than many miles on them before the new owner picks them up from the dealer.

Re: engine break in procedure -> your opinion

you think the Manufacturers know this? i'm sure they do as almost all of there changes came from some race design. The old method probably keeps the idea of throw away cars alive and well. Like MT said alot of times jerks have already test driven the ride well past 20 miles. Just hope they test drive stuff like me hehe
