okay, I'll bite, too!

for all the vintage import fans: my (turning into a LONG term project!!) 1971 240Z. Series one car, all original, matching numbers, just over 100,000 orig. miles. I am accumulating some performance parts and will be a work in progress for some time at the rate I am going! So far I have a 5 spd, and a 1981 280ZX turbo motor waiting to be installed.

The other is my Wife's DD. it is a 2005 Subaru LegacyGT Ltd. Wagon. Satin White Pearl, fully loaded!! Yes, it is auto, but does have tiptronic shifting on the steering wheel. This is one FUN grocery-getter!!!

No pics of my DD, but it is a bone stock 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins power 4 X 4. Trimmed like the Subaru, white w/ tint.

Regards,

Astro

Easing into posting on RCU as I usually spend my time on full size car forums.



I'll be impressed if anyone outside of Europe can tell me what I drive without cheating

LOLL the turbo won't 'blow up' LOL. Sounds like the dealer is feeding you bs.. There is no break in time for the turbo the break in time is for th eengine,. The rings need to be seated.. has nothing to do with the turbo..

If the oil runs through the turbo, and theres alot of metal shavings in the oil from initial engine wear, I believe it could be harmful for the turbo... Its my first turbo car, so I really dont know too much about them. I do work on cars for a living though as a technician for Nissan, and theres no required "break in" for NA cars (At least for Ford and Nissan anyways).... And if there somehow IS a break in period... then I feel bad for anyone who buys a 350Z, cause I know for a fact that almost everyone that gets sold gets BEAT ON for the first 20 miles during the PDI test drive lol

agreed. but if you have shavings in the oil you have bigger issues.. BUT even with shavings in the oil it would not cause the turbo to 'blow up' You may damage the bearings tho..

I guess I was exaggerating a bit when I said "blow up" lol... but yeah i'm sure any "metal shavings" that are produced during the first thousand miles are microscopic, and i guess its not as big as a concern as I may have made it sound..... but it's my first brand new car and i'd rather be safe then sorry

I am a professional engine builder.

The engine "break in" is one hour of run time.

This is critical to baby it for this first hour.

It has nothing to do with "miles driven". Most engines come "off the truck" with 30 minutes of run time.

a few warm ups later and it is broken in...

Please feel free to hammer on that baby all you want.

When you run it hard, you let it idle for a minute and a half before you turn off the key, this allows the turbo's shaft to "cool down" so the oil will not coke.

Coke is when the oil cooks and turns black from prolonged heat.

it has a computer rev limiter, so you will be fine.

One thing you must do is keep the oil clean, at all times.

I worked for Nissan for 16 years, I have been a Nissan Master Tech since 1996, they built lots of turbos.
I have seen customer's turbo glowing bright red from the heat produced.
