Default Re: Break in secrets

Full throttle and low to mid rpm is the best way to seat the rings quickly, before the crosshatch hone marks smooth down. This forces the rings hard against the bore for quick and good seating of the rings to the bore.
On all my new trucks, engines or rebuilds, and I have had many, I use full throttle to load the rings as soon as the engine is slightly warmed up on the first start.
