    Just kidding. Run dinosaur oil for the first 1500-2500 miles, change it at 100, 500 and 1500 at least.

    1. Start and let it idle until oil is up to running temp.
    2. Let cool until oil temp is 100 deg.
    3. Start and repeatedly rev to 2000-2500 rpms until the oil is back to running temp.
    4. Let cool completely.
    5. Drive it normally with getting on it some but not really revving over 5000 rpms.

    I am breaking in another new clutch so #5 won't have many beatings for the first 500 or so miles. Also, #'s 2 & 4 are the most agonizing hours of your life. Haha

    What kind did you pick? Did you choose the venerable T-Rex oil, or did the shop convince you to spring for the new and improved Megasoreass?

    I would have to break it in as well.

    A lot of guys says hey beat it's ass straight away. If it's gonna break now, it would've broke later.

    ^I say F that^ - you are doing it the right way.

    I got on it a little last night. I've put 70 miles on it and ran out 2nd gear to 6000 rpm and ran 1/2 of third. She's every bit as fast as the 418 was.....and it's still not tuned properly.

    I really laid into her last night after 300 miles. WOW! Even with four people in the car it felt faster than the 418.

    Re: Sneak peek.

    I figure I'd update this thread.

    1. Got screwed by my dyno tuner and he only corrected the AFR at wot and left the timing the same as my 418 with higher compression and different camshaft. He took my money and left me with 478 rwHp. I realize that I should lose Hp because the donkey dick camshaft I bought as a temporary one for one summer is totally wrong for my setup.

    2. Went to Woodward with the crap tune and had a blast. Even with my ridiculously expensive slower motor. Plus, it runs like shit below 3000 rpm with any more than 1/2 throttle.



    3. I installed a new wideband and decide to tune the darn thing myself. I spent many, many, many hours tuning below 3000 rpms to no avail. I did however have plenty of success tuning wot. I ended up with an average of 9 degrees of additional timing and it completely HAULS ASS now. We took a trip to Mexico and she completely annihilated a stock C6 by multiple bus lengths. PM me if you want to see that vid. I'm not posting it on this forum.

    4. After 5000 flawless miles, I hit a deer and only had cosmetic damage. It should be back from the body shop soon.



    5. Twin turbos are on the back burner because until later in 2014 because we bought a house with only a single car garage. I must build a garage before I build a turbo setup. Soooooo, I bought this to hopefully gain about 40-60 additional rwHp. 240/248 .629/.629 111 LSA ground at +4 degrees.



    6. I sent off a couple wheels to get widened to 10" and my Creative Steel offset trailing arms should arrive at about the same time as my wider wheels.

    7. Debating which to get first, an 8.8 setup or a wet kit to slap a 250 shot on until I get the twins. I'm also debating whether to go with PT6266's or PT6766's. My decision maker would be at what rpm they will be at full spool.

    Re: Sneak peek.

    I vote 8.8". Although you'll probably break those axles. I can't believe your Getrag has lived as long as it has.

    Also, holy f**k your car is loud.

    Lol. There were other reasons, it is directly next door to my fiancé's grandparents. She takes care of her grandma every day.

    Re: Sneak peek.

    So did you get the tune fixed? Let me know if you want/need a reference for an excellent tuner - pm or fb. If you do the 8.8, you get more than just a robust differential - it's a whole new car with a much better feel so there's my vote.

    Which wideband did you go with and are you tuning with HPTuners Pro?

    I'm just glad to see he's got a girlfriend. It's hard to find one that will endorse this kind of madness!
