k, Break it requires friction, synthetics reduce friction, which lowers the overall break-in. (sorry to hijack your thread nc, btw) Most people know a poorly broken in engine will run poorly. If you break it in strong it will run strong. Just don't over-do it on the break in. Plus synthetic oil doesn't permeate into metal/bearings as well as mineral oils does.

K, so don't break in with synthetic nc. let us know how it goes.
