    Got my motor running tonight. I feel like I accomplished something.
    what does every one think about the break in period. I already changed the oil after about an hour of idleing. I was thinking about 250 miles and change the oil, the at another 250 miles change the oil and let her rip.


    motor is as follows

    stock short-block
    new rings and bearings
    ported windsor jr heads
    F-303 cam
    typhoon intake
    full lengthes and most every other bolt on

    its heading off to the paint shop tomorrow

    Woohoo fresh paint and motor!

    I'd do 150 miles and then 150 miles with the oil change. Also be sure to use regular 10w30. Good luck with the new engine.
