    I agree wholeheartedly. I've built load over the years and always kick there heads in never had a hassle to date.

    It all started with an old pinto engine we chucked together in a hurry and didn't have time to run it in correctly so we abused it in the most shocking way and it was the best pinto we'd ever had! Since then always give them the same abusive treatment they love it.
    Ken-tec FTW.

    I was once told this by a BMW dealer that when you get the car kick it's pan in for the first 100 miles.

    I didn't I was too nervous but he swore by the method!

    The bloke in the link says you only have the first 20 miles to apply his method, after that it's too late - don't most new cars already have that much on the clock?

    From a fair bit of experience with new cars, the slowest ones are always the one that are pootled about at low revs for most of their lifes. The quickest ones are the ones that get a hard time from the word go.

    Interesting read, I'm undecided and to be honest the newest car I've owned had 7k on the clock just a tad over 20 miles.
