Engine in!


August 31 2008 - Engine in!
The new engine is in, and i've been for the first of 8 run-ins.

The engine is running with 'running in oil' which is crappy stuff specifically designed to cut the piston rings and bed the cams in.

The new engine is certainly powerful and torquey - i wheelspan in 6th gear!

New temerature gauges were great, i really feel i can trust them.  A 10 minute drive and temps didn't go above 75, but it is pretty cold and i was keeping rpm below 6000.
