    Brake In?

    Okay I have been Confused about this whole brake in period thing. I have search and read that some people have followed the manual and some did a hard break in.

    Break In Secrets--How To Break In New Motorcycle and Car Engines For More Power

    I would Like to know if anyone followed the "hard" break in. And have you had any problems with your rex.

    I would also like to know who have followed the manual (wait until 1K miles then go over 4k rpm)

    Again, I have search and I and yet still confused about this. Someone please clear this up for me! Thanks!

    Subaru have more experience, particularly in building Subarus, than anyone, including the author from that link.

    Subaru have cleared this up definitively IMO. They give specific instructions. I followed them. I trusted them to build a car correctly so I trust they know how to break in their own motors.

    Again, I cannot name a motor builder with more experience in building Subarus than... Subaru. I'm open to suggestions if anyone else can...
