Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
Out of curiosity... why not?
Not that I dont agree with you to an extent but this has been so highly debated since motoman that even making a statement about it starts a war.
Even though, not to start a war, the motoman theory has been proven over and over and over in so many performance applications. Nowadays, there isnt much thought to engine break-in anyways. You really cant screw it up.
It's so hard to restrain sometimes.
It works too good. It won't allow proper seating and wear of the rings as the fresh motor breaks in. Conventional oil allows for the hone of the cylinder to 'file' the rings and get a perfect fit. It has nothing to do with the oils viscosity as previously stated.
Don't baby it at all. You break the motor in under the same conditions you'll be using the motor. If it's a street/strip car, you break it in that way.
It's common with a high-power street/race motor to be run for 10-20 minutes to clean out the assembly lube and what not, change the oil, and go straight to the dyno. This has never been an issue for anyone of the motors we've built/installed/etc.
The gentleman with 40 years of experience has an old-school mindset. I'm sure he also believes cherry-bomb mufflers, quadrajets, flat-tappet cams are the way of the future....Where 300hp at the crank is ALOT.
What would piston slap do with all the end gaps lined up, anyone want to try that?!
