Now I know we have a proper procedure written by TRD USA on how to break in the engine. I ask this questions to any one who has built, drove, and ripped apart their block (or anyone else that has broken in an engine). I found this link and I'm surprised to see how this guy's procedure to break in an engine. I ask, has this been done by one of you? Does it really work, should you stick to the TRD USA procedures, or how do you really break an engine in? :dunno:

Link I found: http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm

I don't know if going WOT is good for the engine or not but I'd probably stick to what the dealer says and just not go over a certain RPM for X amount of miles.

I guess Motoman's method really works. If Ken, Ryan, and Houston T (Peter) used it, then it must be good. Thanks talltrini10.

Didn't read motomans meathod, but the 3 I have sorta helped build, we built them, cranked them, and then went and drove the hell outta them for about 20ish miles.. than they were ready.. :)

Ben Haynes car in Texas (made 79* RWHP thorugh a TH400) has maybe 75-100 miles on the engine at the time of the event and went through this breakin process...

Talk to Erin Carpenter for more info on this... he is the one that did the work.
