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.
I would tend to think that it would smoke all the time if my rings were not seated yet or properly?
GOOD LUCK and congrats on the build
How did you break it in?
You have to be sure to show the engine a good amount of use within the first 50 miles. Take it through every RPM range, let it boost, and use non-synthetic oil. If you don't, then the rings will not seat properly. About 70-80% of the seating process takes place in the first 20 minutes as it has to do with the roughness of the honed cylinders VS the surface of the rings to 'seat' themselves with a sort of fingerprint.
I'd say keep driving it, get on it a little, and see how it acts. Don't use synthetic until after 1000 miles.
I will definitely take your advise and drive it another 500-1000 miles and see what happens, i also just flat out never drive the darn thing because i have a company car. It took 2 months at least to put 500 miles on it but i will take it on a long road trip and around and hopefully i'll get lucky and everything will seat properly.
This is exactly right. You have to do this to get the rings to seat properly. You can't baby it and expect great results.
