I used the oil recommendation from my engine builder BluePrint. They sell their own brand 30 weight mineral break in oil for use in the first 500 miles. I plan on using mineral oil till I reach 3000 miles then switch to a premium synthetic brand like Driven or Brad Penn.Looking for advice for break-in oil.... Everything seems to be synthetic or synthetic blend. Trying to find old school conventional motor oil.
Please advise on your favored break-in oil.
Also, would love to hear your thoughts on break-in process. I've hear oil changes at 50, 100, 150, 300, 500 and 1,000 miles with conventional motor oil. One thing I've read is that I need to gun it several times right away...
Anyway, still a week or two away from start-up.
What about this advice: http://mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm
I hope it goes smoothly for you.I put 5 quarts of conventional oil through the galley port at about 30 psi using a bug sprayer and a bicycle pump. I put the last of 6 quarts in through normal fill on valve cover. turned the engine by the crank bolt a dozen times or so while the oil went in over 2 hours. Spark plugs torqued to spec, wires installed with heat shields and fiberglass socks. Did some initial configuration on the Dakota Digital VHX cluster and I should see engine temp, oil pressure, RPM, vehicle speed on start up. battery charged. My friend is coming over and I'm going to let him start it because I got the Midas touch of shyt, while he does 9.8 second quarter mile in a turbo 6L LS-powered G-Body.
