Well I picked the hatch up last night from Andy's (cheers fella) and god I've missed it. Even though I've gotta drive it like a fanny for a 1000 mile it still feels great Smile

Nice one, you'll be itching to give it some boost, but you'll have to be a good boy.

Its always good to have your pride and joy back Smile

Who set this '1000 mile' run in rule up ? Always thought about it, I appreciate things need to settle in etc ... I have built plenty engines at work but always been curious,

Because I've gone with a full rebuild and not just pistons it needs the 1000 mile (Advised by Andy.) If it was just pistons I could have got away with 500

Yeah, I understand when a full build is done its longer,

I meant, who/when did the 1000 miles come into the figures. Who set's this as the bench mark ?! I know most builders now say to use this as a guide line and keep it under 2500rpm, so who started it..

Yeah, its like a 'rule of thumb' I guess, I normally say below 3000 rpm and 1000-1200 miles then oil and filter change and then going easy (ish)

When we get engine at work, the manufacturer says 500-800 miles run in/steady period..

It was a nice little present yes .... The fookin bill wasn't lol!

I've heard of people doing stuff like that where they go easy then hard (excuse the phrase) and it makes for a 'loose' engine (or woman) allowing it to give good power... sounds bollocks to me Smile. I'll just be sticking with my slowly slowly slowly ...mapping day ..... fast fast fast Laughing

Nice 1 mate (bet the bill hurt! lol)

1000 miles driving off boost sounds like punishment to me haha, I can guarantee you will have at least 10 cars up ya arse wanting a race in the running in period and you cant do bot all and it will drive you up the wall  lol!

Bet your a happy bunny,  Cool 
Plenty of varied driving keep it under 4k & motorway running in is a no no IMO. But i'm sure AK has advised you already. Happy motoring bud.
