    I agree - break-in, even on a freshly unwrapped engine, takes 20 miles or less...and you hammer the piss out of it.

    I've broken in at least 6 new cars (NissanBMW 3 series and M's, Audi S4, now the Scooby). I hammer the mo-fo right off the lot. Drive the car how you intend to from the start. I've never had a problem. I put at least 50k miles on each car I own.

    Of course, warm up your engine and fluids first. I always use full synthetic (Redline).

    I've now got 18k miles on my WRX, it's broken in nicely, pulls harder and smoother from 5k on up to 7000. Quite a different car up top than with 0-10k miles on it. I was running 15psi at 800 miles.

    A 1000 mile "break-in" is more for the driver to get use to his/her machine than anything else.

    if the civic i ran with just had a muffler (like most of them) u dont think i could still beat him? shifting at 4000rmp still gives me a smidgit of turbo to his none. how was i supposed to know he had a jap spec gsr under the hood? thats not something u see everyday, especially where i live

    Unless he has heavy mods on he b18 your Rex SHOULD rape this guy. My friend has a GSR with EVERY bolt on other than f/i, and he removed the AC/Power Steering, and when we raced i beat him up to 80-90ish before we had to slow down. Also, think about it this way, you stayed under 4k racing him, when i race the car doesnt see below 4k the entire time. You were completely avoiding you most powerful section of the powerband.

    Did you read what I posted above?? An all-motor Integra Type R ran a 13.5 against me last weekend at the track. They can do it (sounds like the Waterboy LOL).

    Of course, the stock Rex tends to fall on it's face anything over 6500rpms. That's why I'd recommend anybody completely stock at least get an MBC (ball and spring type- not a bleeder).

    Sure the stock TD04L turbo itself is too small to flow enough air to redline, but it's still better than the stock boost controller that bleeds it off up high. A stock WRX will go from low 14's to as low as mid 13's with just an MBC set to 16 psi.

    No more racing to 4k

    What does that have to do with my post? Incase you didnt know, there is a 20hp diff between a GSR motor and a ITR motor. Also, that guy in the ITR must have had A LOT of internal work done, which is further than most rice boys go. Anyway, you will smoke the guy if you use your car to its potential, unless he is one of the true honda guys, which i doubt.

    It has to do with

    I was saying that the 13.5 was all-motor and not FI or spraying. So "your Rex should rape this guy" isn't really correct. You're right though, he had a built motor motor but it's still just a built motor, not FI.

    No hard feelings though, I know what you meant.

    Am i not understanding something here, my quote sends EXACTLY the same message as your story. I stated that if the B18 WASNT heavily modded, he would rape him. This also implies that if it WAS heavily modded there would be different results..... This thread has gone way beyond pointless

    I dont care what some shops tell you. I have had 2 94 and up Integra's (one with t3/t4 turbo and the other with JR supercharger). Then I have had 3 or more Civic HB's with B16a and B18c1 motors and they will never break 13's without a big fat ass turbo system or n20. Dont listen to too much of the hype people tell you. The only way a Civic HB with B18c motor will hit 13's is if that motor has been built from the bottom up(blue printed) and all the boltons possible. You are looking at another $5-7k in doing this if you dont go turbo.

    Been there, done that, seen it.
